Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar Series: "Hidden in Plain Sight: Rethinking Battery Design Based on Material Tendencies and Coupled Behaviors"

Monday, May 09, 2016 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Joint Materials/Solid Mechanics Seminar Series: “Hidden in Plain Sight: Rethinking Battery Design Based on Material Tendencies and Coupled Behaviors”, presented by Dr. Dan Steingart, Princeton University Abstract:Endeavors in electrochemical energy storage are industrial masochism for the same reason they are academic hedonism: a mechanical domains. Despite these couplings, most treatments of batteries in the academic literature emphasize material challenges and opportunities as opposed to systematic interactions.
