Active materials and structures
Venue: Bath University - Room TBA
Wednesday November 19, 2014 at 19:30
The lecture will give an overview of the properties and applications of active materials, composites and structures. There will outline the research by Chris Bowen in the areas of functional materials such as ferroelectrics and piezoelectric composites. By attending this lecture you will get an understanding of the range of active and smart materials that are available today along with some demonstrations. The talk will explore the potential applications of these materials, from sensors for hostile environments, bistable structures for harvesting energy, porous ferroelectrics for SONAR and novel biomaterials.
The talk will be followed by a discussion and buffet.
Members and non-members are welcome.
