Original study plan Master's programme Mechatronics 2022W
Objectives Students understand the interaction of mechanical and electrical fields in deformable dielectrics and know the underlying coupling mechanisms such as ferroelectricity, ferroelasticity, electrostriction and piezoelectricity. Students are able to derive mathematical models for such electromechanical continua and they know how to compute solutions with numerical methods.
  • Fundamentals of deformable dielectric continua
  • Physical effects: Ferroelectricity, ferroelasticity, electrostriction, piezoelectricity
  • Mathematical models for deformable dielectric continua with large deformations and large electric fields
  • Numerical methods for efficient simulation of deformable dielectric continua
