McPherson, Timothy (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-03-16)Applications of a small piezoelectric actuator developed by Dr. Jun Ueda will be explored. This will involve the development of a demo robot that incorporates the piezoelectric cellular actuator technology to actuate a ...
Electrically Conductive Polymer Nanocomposites: Theoretical Models vs. Experimental Data and the Rheology-Percolation Threshold Relationship Chu, Chun (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-04-01)
Tzanavaris, Christopher (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2010-03-16)This study explores the use of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) reinforced with vapor-grown carbon fibers (VGCF) as a strain sensor. The operational principal of the nanocomposite sensors with VGCF content above the percolation ...
