Laboratory report






1. 智能结构的振动与失稳分析;2. 软材料的设计与制备;3. 声子晶体和超材料中弹性波的调控;4. 智能材料和结构中的多场耦合行为分析;5. 压电、多铁性以及压电电子学器件的研发;6. 多轴力/力矩智能传感器的设计。


虽然对智能材料和结构的研究已有近40 年的历史,且其在许多现代技术和工程领域中已有了成功的应用,但是即将到来的智能化时代对“智能力学”的需求将是无穷无尽的。如果说传感器和驱动器是智能化时代的基础,那么智能材料和结构就是这些基本设备的核心。新型多功能材料的开发显然为智能材料和结构力学带来了新的生机和活力。此外,拓扑物理学等新的科学概念也将为智能材料和结构的研究开辟新的方向。本实验室将继续为基础科学、技术发展以及智能材料和结构的实际应用做出贡献。
