Seminar of Prof. Oana Cazacu, from the University of Florida, entitle “New models for description of plastic anisotropy of single crystals and polycrystals” – At 12:00 pm in the Seminar Room

 Abstract:  It is presented a rigorous framework developed for formulation of constitutive models. Based on representation theory for tensor functions and scale-bridging theorems, this framework enables the development of constitutive models that account for the influence of crystallographic structures and

First Year Assessment of Venkata Sai, entitle “Nanoscale engineered electrode materials for high performance Lithium-ion batteries” – In the Seminar Room at 12:00 pm

Abstract Herein, highly ordered mesoporous pseudocapacitive electrodes for superior Li-ion storage are discussed. Hierarchical 1-D Co3O4nanorods of size ~20 nm with interfaces between the crystallites were synthesized using hydrothermal method followed by calcination. This 1D nanorods exhibited pseudocapacitive behavior with
