This course introduces the basics of structural mechanics: calculation of stresses and strains caused by external forces and calculation of strains. This theoretical training is applied to the design of important elements of precision mechanisms.
Amongst others, following topics will be covered during the course: - Soft Microsystems and Electronics - Electroactive polymers - Printed electronics and microsystems - Inkjet printing of polymers - Stretchable electronics - Mechanical reliability
