NEW.Mech is a one-day workshop that aims to bring together the New England Mechanics community with an interest in exploring new directions on the mechanics of materials and structures and share the latest advancements in the field.
This year’s workshop was located at Boston University on October 3rd. As in other other years, there was a poster session, among which a subset was chosen for short talks with time for questions. In addition, there was a “Gallery of Mechanics” that showcased the most visually striking movies and images from the research that was presented at the workshop.
My movie “Amplifying the response of soft actuators by harnessing snap-through instabilities” won the #1 prize!
