Traveling Wave Actuators for Flow Control
A piezoelectric actuator surface that generates traveling waves for active flow control has been developed and can be used to remove, reduce, or control flow separation. Background: Flow separation is typically associated with significant energy loss in engineering applications. For example, flow separation decreases lift and increases drag leading...

Accelerating Orthodontic Treatment using Mechanical Vibrations through PVDF Actuators
An intra-oral vibrating device that is contained in the mouth is capable of shortening and increasing the effectiveness of the orthodontic treatment. Background:Traditional braces and retainers (”fixed orthodontics”) require an extended period of 2-3 years to move teeth into the desired position. Fixed orthodontic treatment also poses high...
