[Call for Abstract] SES 2016 Symposium E-1: Mechanics and Electrochemistry of Energy Materials

Zheng Jia's picture

We would like to invite you to submit abstracts to the symposium on Mechanics and Electrochemistry of Energy Materials at the 53rd Annual Technical Meeting of the Society of Engineering Science (SES 2016) to be held at University of Maryland College Park (October 2-5, 2016).

Symposium Description

As advanced energy systems are being developed to meet the global energy needs of the world’s growing population, mechanics has emerged as one of the key factors that affect the performance of energy materials. This symposium is intended to review the current state of the art and formulate the outstanding research needs and grand challenges in mechanics of advanced energy materials. Specific topics of interest include, but not limited to:

• Mechanics of materials in Li-ion batteries and solid state fuel cells
• Mechanics of nanocapacitors 
• Mechanics of hydrogen storage materials 
• Mechanical issues in solar energy conversion 
• Reliability and fatigue of materials for renewable energy 
• Failure mechanisms in energy devices
• Advanced characterization techniques for probing mechanical processes 
• Multi-scale modeling, simulation, and theory of advanced energy materials mechanics 
• Mechanics-guided material design and optimization 
• Design, analysis, homogenization, and optimization of thermoelectrics  
• Energy harvesting of mechanical vibrations 

We cordially invite you to submit your abstracts for oral presentations by June 15, 2016 to Symposium  E-1: Mechanics and Electrochemistry of Energy Materials. Abstract submission is currently open. Please submit your abstract(s) here. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the symposium organizers. We look forward to receiving your submissions and seeing you at College Park!

Symposium Organizers:

Siva Nadimpalli, Assistant Professor, New Jersey Institute of Technology

Yifei Mo, Assistant Professor, University of Maryland-College Park

Kejie Zhao, Assistant Professor, Purdue University
