Lab-on-Skin: A Review of Flexible and Stretchable Electronics for Wearable Health Monitoring

Skin is the largest organ of the human body, and it offers a diagnostic interface rich with vital biological signals from the inner organs, blood vessels, muscles, and dermis/epidermis. Soft, flexible, and stretchable electronic devices provide a novel platform to interface with soft tissues for robotic feedback and control, regenerative medicine, and continuous health monitoring.

On arterial fiber dispersion and auxetic effect

There are two polar contemporary approaches to the constitutive modeling of arterial wall with anisotropy induced by collagen fibers. The first one is based on the angular integration (AI) of the strain energy on a unit sphere for the analytically defined fiber dispersion. The second one is based on the introduction of the generalized structure tensors (GST). AI approach is very involved computationally while GST approach requires somewhat complicated procedure for the exclusion of compressed fibers.

Multiple scattering theory for polycrystalline materials

This work is a natural extension of the author’s previous work: “Multiple scattering theory for heterogeneous elastic continua with strong property fluctuation: theoretical fundamentals and applications” (arXiv:1706.09137 [physics.geo-ph]), which established the foundation for developing multiple scattering model for heterogeneous elastic continua with either weak or strong fluctuations in mass density and elastic stiffness. Polycrystalline material is another type of heterogeneous materials that widely exists in nature and extensively used in industry.

Multiple scattering theory for heterogeneous elastic continua with strong property fluctuation: theoretical fundamentals and applications

Scattering of elastic waves in heterogeneous media has become one of the most important problems in the field of wave propagation due to its broad applications in seismology, natural resource exploration, ultrasonic nondestructive evaluation and biomedical ultrasound. Nevertheless, it is one of the most challenging problems because of the complicated medium inhomogeneity and the complexity of the elastodynamic equations.

PhD positions in Computational Mechanics at the University of Wisconsin Madison

Looking for prospective PhD students with strong background in solid mechanics and numerical methods to join the Computational Mechanics and Multiphysics Group at the University of Wisconsin Madison. Background in modeling contact or contact mechanics is a big plus but not essential.  

The research scope is in the broader areas of mechanics driven multiphysics in morphogenesis/embroyogenesis phenomena (Biophysics) and microstructure evolution in metallic alloys.   

On the Potential of Lattice Type Model for Predicting Shear Capacity of Reinforced Concrete and SHCC Structures
