Call for Abstracts: Topic on Mechanics and Manufacturing of Soft Materials and Soft Robots in ASME IMECE 2019

ChangyongCao's picture

Dear colleagues:

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the topic on Mechanics and Manufacturing of Soft Materials and Soft Robots at the 2019 ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress & Exposition (IMECE 2019) to be held from November 8-14, 2019 at Salt Lake City, Utah.

Soft materials like elastomers, hydrogels, shape-memory polymers can deform largely when subjected to external stimuli, such as mechanical, thermal, electrical, magnetic, or chemical loadings, leading to novel functions in soft structures, machines and robotics. This topic is aiming at exchanging and discussing the current theoretical, experimental and computational advances in mechanics and manufacturing of soft materials and machines, as well as their broad applications. Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Constitutive relations of soft materials
• Computational methods for soft materials
• Experimental characterization of soft materials
• Design and application of soft materials and soft robots
• Failure of soft materials and soft robots
• 3D/4D printing and fabrication of soft materials and soft robots

To submit an abstract, please
1. Go to: https://event.asme.org/IMECE
2. Select Track 11 (Mechanics of Solids, Structures and Fluids)
3. Select Topic 11-5 (Mechanics and Manufacturing of Soft Materials and Soft Robots)
Note: This topic accepts “presentation only” abstracts. No papers will be accepted.
The deadline for abstract submission is June 22nd, 2019.
Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to receiving your contributions and seeing you in Salt Lake City.
