Two MEMS Professors Give Keynotes at SEM Conference
Mechanical Engineering Professors Anne Robertson and Tevis Jacobs both delivered keynote lectures at the 2022 Society for Experimental Mechanics (SEM) Annual Conference on Experimental and Applied Mechanics held in Pittsburgh earlier this June.
Robertson’s talk was titled “Understanding the Diverse Sources of Strength and Vulnerability in Cerebral Aneurysm Walls” and was a part of the 12th International Symposium on the Mechanics of Biological Systems and Materials. Jacobs' talk was called “Toward Understanding of Nanoscale Adhesion Using In situ Experiments in a Transmission Electron Microscope” and fell within the 23rd International Symposium on Micro- and Nano Mechanics.
According to the organization’s website, “The SEM Annual Conference and Exposition focuses on all areas of research and applications pertaining to experimental mechanics, and has evolved to encompass the latest technologies supporting optical methods; additive & advanced manufacturing; dynamic behavior of materials; biological systems; micro-and nano mechanics; fatigue and fracture; composite and multifunctional materials; residual stress; inverse problem methodologies; thermomechanics; and time dependent materials.”
