Symposium Description:

Mechanics has emerged as one of the key factors affecting the performance of energy materials in thermoelectrics, photovoltaics, and batteries. The importance of mechanical properties in materials for renewable energy sources, such as wind, wave, solar, geomethermal, and tidal energies, is also widely recognized. This symposium will bring together experts from materials sciences, mechanics, chemistry, and other engineering communities interested in energy conversion, storage, and harvesting to review the current state of the art technologies and discuss the outstanding research needs and grand challenges in mechanics of advanced energy materials. Interdisciplinary topics will be addressed through invited talks in order to accelerate the fundamental understanding of these materials toward applications. Topics addressed in this symposium will include (but not be limited to):

  • Mechanics of materials used in Li-ion batteries, solid state fuel cells, and hydrogen storage, including mechanics-guided material design and optimization
  • Mechanics of energy conversion and storage systems, including solar, thermoelectric, vibrational energy harvesting, and nanocapacitor systems
  • Reliability and fatigue of materials for renewable energy
  • Advanced characterization techniques
  • Multi-scale & multi-physics modeling, simulation, and theory of advanced energy materials
