Effective Mechanical Structures attributed to the presence of microstructures
Project management at the University of Würzburg:
The goal is to establish a long lasting collaboration between the University of Würzburg and UC Santa Barbara on projects related to mechanical properties of materials derived from their microscopic structure. Specifically, ferromagnetic materials (in the context of micromagnetics) and complex fluids involving magnetic interactions will be considered. These materials are used in computer disc drives, and can find applications in green energies through the direct conversion of heat to electricity. Our objective is the mathematical modelling of such materials and the analysis and simulations of these models.
Projekt period: from 07.2012 to 12.2013
