On Wednesday, 17th September 2014, eight students presented the final results of their Master’s theses conducted at the Laboratory of Composite Materials and Adaptive Structures. The topics of their theses were within the scope of our laboratory's main research areas: compliant systems, electro-mechanical material systems, composite processing, and computational structural mechanics.

We congratulate the Master students on this final stage of their studies and wish them all the best for the future!

The Composite Materials and Adaptive Structures Lab welcomes Edgar Flores Parra

image

Edgar Flores Parra obtained his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Colorado at Boulder. Before joining ETHZ, he worked as a research assistant at EPFL formulating constitutive models for post-buckled lattices.

Edgar will be investigating novel concepts of internally resonant mechanisms and their integration as part of aerospace structural components endowed with tunable, amplitude‐dependent, extreme damping.

We are pleased to have him as a part of our team and wish him all the best!

Dr. Joanna Wong completed her doctoral degree under the supervision of Prof. Ermanni in 2011 with a thesis “Macroporous Polymers from Particle-Stabilized Foams for Ferroelectrets”. Afterwards, she gained post-doctoral experience at EMPA-Dübendorf and proceeded to become the Principal Scientist of a startup company in Boston. Dr. Wong will be working on the SCCER project for Efficient Technologies and Systems for Mobility by developing recyclable thermoplastic composites for high volume manufacturing.

We look forward to working with her and wish her all the best!

The Composite Materials and Adaptive Structures Lab participates in the Zurich Heart project.

The goal of this project is to develop a hyperelastic hybrid membrane for a biomimetic blood propulsion system.

Our research in this project focuses on the optimization of the pump chamber to minimize the mechanical loading on the hybrid membrane and the blood.
