pyLife workshop - updated dates

 

Dear iMechanicians,

A week ago, I published a blog post here on the pyLife workshop, which had to start tomorrow. The next day, I was informed by one of the lecturers that he cannot come. I checked with all on-site participants whether we can postpone the workshop, and I organized a Doodle poll to find the optimum dates that fit to the most of registered participants. We have a result today - the workshop is shifted by two months exactly. Below you can find the original invitation with the final dates:

Nonlinear statistical mechanics drives intrinsic electrostriction and volumetric torque in polymer networks

Dear colleagues,

We invite you to see the preprint of our new paper "Nonlinear statistical mechanics drives intrinsic electrostriction and volumetric torque in polymer networks" that will appear in Physical Review E. Here we use a nonlinear statistical mechanics approach to the electroelasticity of dielectric polymer chains and obtain a two-way coupling between chain deformation and dielectric response. This two-way coupling leads to electrically induced stresses and volumetric torques within an elastomer network which can be leveraged to develop higher efficiency soft actuators, electroactive materials, and novel electromechanical mechanisms. (https://doi.org/10.1103/PhysRevE.103.042504).
