Flexible Margin Kinematics and Vortex Formation of Aurelia aurita and Robojelly
The development of a rowing jellyfish biomimetic robot termed as “Robojelly”, has led to the discovery of a passive flexible flap located between the flexion point and bell margin on the Aurelia aurita. A comparative ...
Near-flat self-biased magnetoelectric response in geometry gradient composite
(American Institute of Physics, 2014-03-14)
We demonstrate a near-flat self-biased magnetoelectric (ME) effect in geometry gradient magnetostrictive-piezoelectric laminates. The near-flat behavior was characterized by a stable ME response over a wide range of magnetic ...
Anisotropic self-biased dual-phase low frequency magneto-mechano-electric energy harvesters with giant power densities
(AIP Publishing, 2014-04-02)
We report the physical behavior of self-biased multi-functional magneto-mechanoelectric (MME) laminates simultaneously excited by magnetic and/or mechanical vibrations. The MME laminates composed of Ni and single crystal ...
IAWA Archivist’s Report, FY 2013-2014
(Virginia Tech, 2014)
The IAWA was established in 1985 as a collaborative project between the College of Architecture and Urban Studies and the University Libraries at Virginia Tech. It is overseen by a board of advisors that includes architects, ...
Cyanea capillata Bell Kinematics Analysis through Corrected In Situ Imaging and Modeling Using Strategic Discretization Techniques
Obtaining accurate kinematic data of animals is essential for many biological studies and bio-inspired engineering. Many animals, however, are either too large or too delicate to transport to controlled environments where ...

The Center for Gerontology newsletter, published twice annually, provides faculty and project updates, along with recognitions received by faculty and students in the area of age-related research and activities.
Olefin cross-metathesis, a mild, modular approach to functionalized cellulose esters
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-09-02)
Olefin cross-metathesis has been demonstrated to be a modular pathway for synthesis of a series of functionalized cellulose esters. As a proof of concept, cellulose acetate was acylated with two terminally olefinic acid ...
