  • AME Seminar

    Wed, Sep 27, 2023 @ 03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

    Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Sam Tawfick, University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

    Talk Title: Nonlinear Mechanics and Robotic Mechanisms using Coiled Muscles and Snapping Beams

    Abstract: My group is developing a roadmap for elastic actuating materials to replace bulky electric motors in miniature robots requiring large mechanical work output.

    First, I will describe the mechanics of coiled muscles made by twisting nylon fishing lines, and how these actuators use internal strain energy to achieve a record breaking performance. Then I will describe intriguing hierarchical super, and hyper coiled artificial muscles which exploit the interplay between nonlinear mechanics and material microstructure. Next, I will describe their use to actuate the dynamic snapping of insect-scale jumping robots. The combination of strong but slow muscles with a fast-snapping beam gives rise to dynamic buckling cascade phenomena leading to effective robotic jumping mechanisms.

    These examples shed light on the future of automation propelled by new bioinspired materials, nonlinear mechanics, and unusual manufacturing processes.

    Biography: Sameh Tawfick is an Associate Professor of Mechanical Science and Engineering at the University of Illinois. He studies advanced materials, nonlinear mechanics, and manufacturing processes. Sam obtained his PhD from the University of Michigan, was a Postdoctoral Associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and a Beaufort Visiting Fellow in St. Johns College at the University of Cambridge in 2023 He is the recipient of young investigator awards from the US Air Force, ASME, SME, and Deans Award for Excellence in Research at Illinois. His teaching awards at the University of Illinois include The Everitt Award for Teaching Excellence, The Two-year Alumni Teaching Award, and The Engineering Council Stanley H. Pierce Award for Empathetic Student-faculty Cooperation.
