[Call for ABSTRACT] 2016 SES Symposium D-5 on Mechanics and Design of Mechanical Metamaterials by 06/15/2016

Jie. Yin's picture

We would like to invite you to submit abstracts for oral presentations to Symposium D-5 on “Mechanics and Design of Mechanical Metamaterials” at the 53rd Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES 2016), hosted by the University of Maryland College Park during 2-5 October 2016.

The deadline for abstract submission is June 15, 2016

Symposium Description:

Mechanical metamaterials are artificial materials, which are becoming an emerging frontier in scientific research and engineering innovation due to their unprecedented physical properties, arising from the innovative geometrical design of unit cells. Meanwhile, mechanical metamaterials can be reconfigured beyond their original designs by changing the size, shape, and symmetry by means of simple deformation in local structural elements, providing enhanced flexible performance coupled with structural reconfiguration. Mechanical metamaterials synergistically integrate mechanics, geometry, design, properties, and functionality. This symposium will represent the emerging and recent advances in mechanical metamaterials with a focus on their extraordinary mechanical behaviors through purposeful geometrical and mechanical designs, as well as enabled novel engineering applications across a wide range of length scales. Topics of particular interest include:

    Modeling, simulation, fabrication, and experimental characterization of mechanical metamaterials at all scales

    Multifunctional mechanical metamaterials in mechanics, acoustics, electronics, and medicine etc.

    Origami/Kirigami-based 2D and 3D mechanical metamaterials

    Buckling-based reconfigurable metamaterials

    Design of unit geometry and hierarchical structure for exotic mechanical and acoustic properties (negative Poisson’s ratio, negative stiffness, negative acoustic indices etc)

    Active soft mechanical metamaterials in response to external stimuli

    Programmable and reprogrammable mechanical metamaterials

Please be reminded to submit your abstract online at the abstract submission site by June 15, 2016 to Symposium D-5Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We look forward to receiving your submissions!

Best regards,

Symposium D-5 Organizers

Dr. Jie Yin, Assistant Professor, Temple University,
