Join us in the Engineering Research Center, Room 125 Dr. Vikas Srivastava, Mechanics Team Lead, Senior Technical Advisor Mechanics of Materials, ExxonMobil Upstream Research will present a talk: "Thermo-Mechanics of Amorphous and Shape Memory Polymers with Applications in Biomedical Engineering". Abstract: Amorphous polymers are important engineering materials with applications ranging from automotive, electronics, optical devices and medical technology. However, their nonlinear, strongly temperature- and rate-dependent elastic-viscoplastic behavior is not well understood.
