Graduate Research Assistant (PhD student) position in ME @ Georgia Tech

We are seeking a motivated PhD student (only a student currently in the US for an immediate start) to work as a Graduate Research Assistant in our NSF project titled "Metamaterial-Enhanced Electroelastoacoustic Energy Harvesting for Sensor Systems." This computational and experimental project will investigate electroelastoacoustically coupled linear and nonlinear metamaterial-inspired piezoelectric energy harvesting concepts for self-powered sensor systems.

The piezoelectronic transistor: A nanoactuator-based post-CMOS digital switch with high speed and low power

A review article of our research at IBM TJ Wason Research Center in piezoelectronic transistor, an exploratory device beyond silicon, is published in MRS Bulletin, Volume 37, Issue 11, November 2012, pp 1071-1076. Your future computer may depend even more on the mechanics.

Abstract

Nanocomposite Electrical Generators....

A nanocomposite electrical generator composed of an array of zinc oxide nanowires is considered.
The electric potential distribution along zinc oxide nanowires is modeled using continuum
mechanics and Maxwell’s equations for the case of axial loading. A perturbation technique is used
for decoupling the constitutive equations. The governing differential equations are solved using a
finite difference method. It is shown that a gradient of electric potential exists along the axis of the
zinc oxide nanowires. Maximum and minimum values of electric potential exist at the extreme ends
along the nanowire length and have opposite signs. The positive and negative voltages are separated

Concrete beam with piezoelectric sensors in ABAQUS

Choose a channel featured in the header of iMechanica: 

 

Hello,

 

I am trying to model piezoelectric sensors on a concrete beam in ABAQUS. Since I am using brttile cracking model, I have to use ABAQUS / Explicit. But piezoelectric elements are not available in ABAQUS / Explicit.

In some papers I saw that the piezoelectricity modeling problem in ABAQUS / Explicit is solved by replacing it by an equivalent Thermo-Mechanical problem. Does anybody know how to accomplish this?

Do you have any suggestions? Are there any other ways to model piezoelectricity in ABAQUS / Explicit?
