GRA (PhD student) positions on two NSF projects at Georgia Tech

Greetings - I am seeking two self-motivated PhD students for two separate NSF projects:

Project 1 is on nonlinear nonconservative dynamics of fiber-based flexible piezoelectric composites for complex 3D deformations (involves theory and experiments)

keywords: vibration, piezoelectricity, nonlinear, dissipation, plates, actuation

(a co-PI and another student will be on the fluid dynamics side of the multiphysics problem, involves strong collaboration)
