CMASLab at SPIE Smart Structures/NDE

Jascha Schmied and Edgar Flores Parra from the Electro-Mechanical Material Systems group represented CMASLab at the SPIE Conference on smart structures and non-destructive evaluation. They presented their work on vibration attenuation and the manipulation of wave propagation using periodic internally resonant and electromechanically coupled media. The conference was held in Portland, Oregon from the 25th to the 29th of March 2017. Read more 


Visit of Prof. Paolo Gaudenzi

On Friday, March 31st , Prof. Paolo Gaudenzi and a small delegation from the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Rome 'La Sapienza' visited our group. Prof. Gaudenzi gave a short seminar on damage mechanisms in composite laminates due to low-velocity impacts, followed by a visit to our laboratories. We thank him and his group for the interesting discussions and wish them great success with their future work! Read more 


Intermediate Presentations and Best Thesis Award

On Friday, March 24th , the intermediate presentations of the student projects supervised by CMASLab took place. The in total fifty Bachelor's, Semester and Master's projects - many of which are conducted in the framework of Focus Projects offered by our lab - are closely related to our research activities: the students study aerospace structures, electro-mechanical material systems and processing and computational analysis of composite structures. We look forward to their achievements during their work! Read more

Zurich Heart

CMASLab 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. Read more

SCCER Mobility

CMASLab is a member of the SCCER Mobility project which helps the current fossil fuel-based transportation system transition to a sustainable one with minimal CO2 output and zero-pollutant emissions.

Our research within this project is in developing cost-effective novel materials and processes for thermoplastic composite materials for applications in the automotive industry. Read more
