ME 6760 - Smart Materials and Structures
Lec. 3. Cr. 3.
Prerequisite: Undergraduate courses in Differential Equations, Mechanics of Materials, and System Dynamics, or consent of instructor. Governing physical principles of ceramic, metallic, and polymeric smart materials; consitutive modeling of piezoelectric ceramics; static and dynamic modeling of piezoelectric material systems. Piezoelectrics, shape memory alloys, and electroactive polymers will be discussed. Undergraduate level courses in differential equations, mechanics of materials, and system dynamics (e.g. Dynamic Modeling and Control) required for this course.
