Congratulations to Naigeng Chen for passing his B-exam yesterday with flying colors! His thesis entitled “Experimental and Computational Study of Non-woven Damage Mechanics” is well, a comprehensive experimental and computational study of non-woven damage mechanics, using a commercial polypropylene non-woven series (Typar SF) as his experimental system. This picture from right after the deliberations might […]
Advisor matching season is coming to a close and we have three new PhD candidates in the MMD lab. Welcome to Michael Buche, Steven Yang, and Joy Zhang who come from the fields of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, Mechanical Engineering, and Materials Science and Engineering respectively.
Naigeng’s work on determining bond strength within non-wovens is now published in Experimental Mechanics. In this meticulous combined experimental and computational effort Naigeng outlines and then validates a method for determining the bond strength distribution within non-wovens formed from fiber-fiber bonds. This method can be used as long as the non-woven can be imaged (e.g. […]
Mechanochemistry in Materials is now available for purchase. This book includes a chapter on mechanochemical transduction in bulk polymers by PI Silberstein and former graduate student Meenakshi Manivannan and also a chapter on mechanophore design for chemical function by collaborator Charles Diesendruck.
Graduate student Suwon Bae has published his work on the thermo-mechanical properties of single chain polymer nanoparticles in Soft Matter. This work is in collaboration with Or Galant of the Diesendruck group at the Technion who spent the summer as a visiting student in our lab. This first ever study on the mechanical properties of […]
Welcome to postdoctoral associate Yuval Vidavsky, PhD candidate Duhan Zhang, and MS candidate Zelin Linghu. Yuval joins us from Stratasys and has a PhD in Chemistry from Ben Gurion University. Duhan has an MS in Biomedical Engineering from Cornell and has already passed her Mechanical Engineering doctoral qualifying exam. Zelin comes to us from Tsinghua University […]
Congratulations to Suwon Bae for passing his A-exam! That’s one big step closer to graduating. He presented his molecular dynamics study on the thermomechanical behavior single chain polymer nanoparticles (SCPN) as well as his preliminary tensile data on bulk polymers formed from SCPN.
