MECH6330 - Multiscale Design & Optimization

MECH 6330 Multiscale Design & Optimization (3 semester hours) Multi-scale systems consist of components from two or more length scales (nano, micro, meso, or macro-scales). The challenge is to make these components so they are conceptually and model-wise compatible with other-scale components with which they interface. This course covers the fundamental properties of scales, design theories, modeling methods and manufacturing issues which must be addressed in these systems. Examples include precision instruments, nanomanipulators, fiber optics, micro/nano-photonics, nanorobotics, MEMS, carbon nano-tube assemblies. Prerequisite: MECH 6303 (3-0) T
