Prof. Matlack, Ignacio, and Nusrat presented the lab’s research work at USNC/TAM 2022

Prof. Matlack gave two invited talks at the 19th U.S. National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics held in Austin, Texas, USA. The two talks were “Nonlinear wave propagation from periodic arrangements of rough contact interfaces” and “Understanding the magneto-mechanical coupling in magneto-active elastomeric metastructures”.

WPML Ph.D. students Ignacio Arretche and Nusrat Salim also presented their research work at the conference. Ignacio gave a talk on “Experimental Validation of Effective Phononic Crystals for Controlling Cylindrical Torsional Waves” and Nusrat presented on “Active Damage Control in Magnetoactive Elastomers Induced by Magnetic Field”.
