Engineering of Smart Materials: Stimuli-Responsive Fluids, Gels, and Capsules
- Type: Archived Webinar
- Level: Intermediate
- Duration: 1 hour
- PDHs: 1.00
It’s now possible to engineer fluids and soft materials that show dramatic changes in their properties when exposed to external stimuli. What are the principles behind the engineering? Learn more.
In 60 minutes, Dr. Srinivasa Raghavan will discuss how stimuli-responsive fluids, gels and capsules change when exposed to external stimuli such as temperature, pH, magnetic fields, electric fields and light. You’ll gain an understanding of the principles behind the engineering of such materials. And, you’ll go inside the research lab to see examples. Don’t miss this webinar, especially if you’re working in the consumer products, cleaning products, paints and coatings, pharmaceuticals, or agrochemicals industry.
Take a look at your agenda:
- What are smart materials?
- Basic engineering principles underlying smart materials
- How stimuli-responsive materials enable innovation
- Examples straight from the research lab
Srinivasa (Srini) Raghavan is the Patrick & Marguerite Sung Professor in the Department of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering at the University of Maryland, College Park (UMD). He received his B.Tech. and Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and North Carolina State University, respectively.
His research on self-assembly, nanostructured fluids and soft materials has resulted in more than 140 publications and 20 U.S. patents, which have been cited more than 9000 times (h-index of 52). He has received several national and University-...Read more
