Webinar: Design of High Efficiency Compressors with Low GWP Refrigerants

Design of High-Efficiency Compressors with Low GWP Refrigerants

Refrigerants are used in many applications such as stationary and mobile air conditioning and refrigeration systems. A commonly used refrigerant such as R134a has a low Ozone Depleting Potential (ODP) but relatively high Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1400. In recent years there has been substantial growth in refrigerant used for cooling applications.

Unusual couplings in elastic tubes - negative poisson effect and overwinding on being stretched

We demonstrate intersting extension-torsion-inflation coupling in intrinsically twisted chiral tubes. In particular, we show that by tuning its intrinsic twist and the material constants, such tubes can show negative poison effect on being stretched. Similarly, such tubes can overwind initially when stretched - the same unusual behavior has been reported earlier when a DNA molecule is stretched.

Edge effect of strained bilayer nanofilms for tunable multistability and actuation

Inspired by the need to develop reconfigurable materials at the micro- and nano- scales that are capable of exhibiting more than one stable configuration, we employed both theoretical and computational models supported by experiments to study the multistable behavior of a Si/Cr microclaw and uncover the mechanical principles involved.

Electromechanical Catastrophe

A transducer is a system that couples two loads. For example, an electromechanical transducer couples a mechanical force and an electrical voltage. A two-load, nonlinear system can exhibit rich behavior of bifurcation, which can be displayed in a three-dimensional space, with the horizontal plane representing the two loads, and the vertical axis representing the state of the system. In this three-dimensional space, a state of equilibrium at fixed loads corresponds to a point on a surface.
