Bio-inspired materials with self-adaptable mechanical properties and architected materials with extreme energy absorption & deep subwavelength sound absorption

135 Reber Building
3:35 p.m. - 4:35 p.m.

ME590 Seminar Speaker Dr. Sung Hoon Kang

Additional Information:

Abstract: Dr. Kang will present his ongoing efforts to synthesize and manufacture novel materials and structures inspired by nature, guided by mechanics and numerical modeling, and/or enabled by 3D printing. First, he will present a material system that can self-adapt to mechanical loadings and mitigate damages inspired by bone. Second, he will present architected materials (or metamaterials) with extreme and adaptive energy absorption based on liquid crystal elastomers. Third, he will present architected materials absorbing deep subwavelength sounds with tunable frequency ranges.
