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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
