Smart materials are used in vibration control, active shape control, structural health monitoring and energy harvesting. These materials have the ability to transduce one form of energy to another which makes them useful as actuators and sensors. In this webinar we will demonstrate how COMSOL’s multiphysics modeling framework makes it easy to simulate smart materials that exhibit well-known phenomena such as piezoelectric, piezoresistive, magnetostrictive and shape memory effects. We will also discuss about smart fluids that exhibit electrorheological and magnetorheological effect.
Supratik Datta, Applications Manager, COMSOL
Supratik Datta received a Ph.D. in Aerospace Engineering from University of Maryland, College Park in 2009. He has been involved in research related to damage detection in composites, phase transformation in ferrous alloys and design and non-linear modeling of piezoelectric and magnetostrictive actuators and sensors. Supratik's research has been published in several peer-reviewed journals and he has received awards from AIAA and ASME for his work on magnetostrictive materials. He is currently working as an Applications Manager in COMSOL, Inc., Palo Alto.
Julie Slaughter, Research Engineer, ETREMA Products, Inc.
Julie Slaughter received her PhD in Engineering Mechanics from Iowa State University. Her work with magnetostrictive materials and transducers began in 1996. Julie has been using COMSOL to model magnetostrictive transducers for nearly 10 years.
