(2021-07-23)In recent years, demand for traumatic brain injury (TBI) research has boomed with increased awareness around these injuries. This thesis intends to increase the capability of finite element (FE) TBI modeling, one of the ...
Study of Phospholipid/Graphene interfaces and the effect of substrate curvature on lipid morphology and dynamics. (2021-07-22)Phospholipids are an important class of lipids which are widely used as model platforms to study biological processes and interactions. They have been known to form stable interfaces with solid substrates like graphene, ...
The dynamics of ultrafast motion in biological and bio-inspired systems: the case study of click beetles (2021-07-14)Some of the fastest and most extraordinary motions of the animal kingdom are generated by small animals to locomote, hunt, or escape predators. Mantis shrimps, trap-jaw ants, fleas, and click beetles can repeatedly achieve ...
Ab initio study of effects of interstitial species on electrochemical and mechanical properties of prussian blue analogues (2021-07-15)Prussian blue analogue (PBA) materials have found extensive use as Faradaic electrodes for both ion separations and energy storage during the past decade. The micro-porous framework lattice of PBA allows intercalation and ...
(2021-07-06)Supported by the cumulative results of industrial robotics and legged locomotion research, humanoid robotics research has gained great strides in the past decade. The state-of-the-robot humanoid robots have demonstrated ...
