New knowledge about old plastics

There is a huge number of different plastic types. This means it is no easy matter to get the rate of plastics recycling to rise. At the Department of Engineering, daily tests on plastics will make it easier for industry to identify the specific type of plastic and produce recycled plastic products in the right quality. Learn more about the…

"One of the more interesting things I'm working on is bioelectronic devices, a field where electronics and biology come together. Here we try to encapsulate biocompatible 3D printed electronic in human cells," says Shweta Agarwala, a new assistant professor at Aarhus University. Photo: Lars Kruse / AU Foto.

New research identifies the strengths and weaknesses of super material

Scientists from Aarhus University and the University of Cambridge are the first to measure and set guidelines for bolted joints using the up-coming replacement for Kevlar: the ultra-strong material with the catchy name ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene

EVENTS

Wed 16 Oct
09:00-12:00 | Room 140, building 5125, Finlandsgade 22, 8200 Aarhus N
Workshop: Simulation of piezoelectric devices
You will see how to model a piezoelectric crystal coupled with an electrical circuit. We will discuss the implementation of a rotated coordinate system to define the crystal's orientation independently from the specified geometry. Finally, we will see how the coupling to other physics, e.g. acoustics, are easily handled.
