Short Term Course on Smart Materials and Structures: Theory and Applications
Introduction and Objectives of the Course:
The objective of the coursework is to provide the theoretical fundamentals coupled with practical knowledge of smart materials and structures to solve various engineering problems of real-life applications. Different types of smart materials like Piezoelectric, Piezoresistive, SMA, MR, ER fluid etc. with recent applications in the field of energy harvesting, bio-pump, the piezo motor, MEMS devices, biomimic structures, etc. The theoretical lectures will be followed by lab session where ANSYS® session & demonstration of working on different smart materials will be discussed. The main focus will be towards the fundamental aspects of smart materials and its engineering applications. This course will also cover various aspects related to several smart materials, their modeling, and analysis. The hands-on training session will be conducted during coursework.
