INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE for MULTIFUNCTIONAL MATERIALS for ENERGY CONVERSION (IIMEC)

Multifunctional Energy Harvesting Nanocomposites: A Collaboration Across ContinentsDimitris C. Lagoudas, Texas Engineering Experiment Station, DMR 0844082

-By combining chemical extraction expertise of Kaddami (Morocco) and PNC processing and piezo characterization of Ounaies (US), we developed cellulose nanowhisker-reinforced polymer composites whereboth mechanical and dielectric properties are enhanced at extremely low loadings of CWs.

-We established a methodology for comparing various configurations of piezoelectric flexible materials for harvesting energy from ocean power; we optimized device configuration, active material, connection pattern, size and location for maximum volumetric power production (W/m3).

Multifunctional Energy Harvesting Nanocomposites: Workshops and Collaboration Across Continents Dimitris C. Lagoudas, Texas Engineering Experiment Station, DMR 0844082

Student Exchanges

-A short course on multifunctional materials was taught by Ounaies (TAMU) at Ecole Polytechnic in Tunis to first year Masters students. Three students (two of which are female) from that class are now at TAMU, conducting research in related areas: O. Ltaif (compositesSMA ), A Meksi (SMAs) , and E. Helal (nanocomposites for dielectric storage).

-An international workshop on shape memory alloys successfully took place in June 20-24th, 2010 in Istanbul, Turkey. In addition to disseminating important research results, the workshop played an important role in educating a globally-oriented workforce.

-A kick-off meeting (first annual IIMEC meeting) took place in January 25-27, 2010 in College Station, TX. One result of the meeting and break-out sessions is the creation of cross-collaboration between North African countries and institutions, which will feed into IIMEC’s goals of creating an international materials network, and advancing discoveries in the area of multifunctional materials.
