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 ...
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 ...

Structure-performance relationships for cantilever-type piezoelectric energy harvesters
(American Institute of Physics, 2014-05-28)
This study provides comprehensive analysis of the structure-performance relationships in cantilever-type piezoelectric energy harvesters. It provides full understanding of the effect of all the practical global control ...
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 ...
