Those working in open office spaces may someday have a little more privacy, thanks to a new wall partition in the works at Mizzou Engineering. Guoliang Huang, James C. Dowell Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (MAE), is researching the best acoustic metamaterials and structure component to create a new, thin, sound-proof […]
Mizzou Engineering, in conjunction with the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine and the U.S. National Committee on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics, hosted the AmeriMech Symposium: Non-reciprocal and Topological Wave Phenomena in Solids and Fluids recently.
The prestigious seminar series was hosted by the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute. The talk was titled “Programmable and Modulated Metamaterials for Unprecedented Wave Propagation Control.”
Guoliang Huang utilized his funds to purchase a high-quality 3D laser vibrometer, the first of its kind to be housed at the University of Missouri. 3D laser vibrometers allow for investigation of a wide array of vibrating systems in a way that does not impact the organism or object being studied.
The first-ever AOI Sensing Symposium was a unique example of what is possible when industry, research and education collide in search of engineering solutions for critically important global challenges.
Guoliang Huang, an associate professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering, led an MU research team that published “Enhanced flexural wave sensing by adaptive gradient-index metamaterials” in Scientific Reports. The paper illustrates how the team developed active metamaterials to boost the elastic wave signals in large structures.
