Academic Year 2014-2015
Professor Luis Dorfmann has recently published a book
describing the mechanical properties of smart materials used in
everything from high-speed actuators and sensors to artificial
muscles. His book,
Nonlinear Theory of Electroelastic and
Magnetoelastic Interactions, written with Ray Ogden presents an
overview of the fundamental concepts of electromagnetic theory
and nonlinear elasticity that can describe these unique
properties for soft materials capable of large elastic
- The International Centre for Mechanical Sciences (CISM) in
Italy offered a short course on Nonlinear Mechanics of Soft
Fibrous Materials from July 1-5, 2013. Lectures were given by Ray
Ogden, University of Glasgow; David Steigmann, University of
California at Berkeley; Federico Salvatore, University of
Calgary; Giuseppe Saccomandi, University of Perugia; Michel
Destrade, National University of Ireland Galway and Luis
Dorfmann, Tufts University.
Lecture notes are published by Springer:
Dorfmann L, Ogden RW, Nonlinear Mechanics of Soft Fibrous
Wien, ISBN 978-3-7091-1837-5, New York, 2015.
- Volume 47 (2012) of the International Journal of Non-Linear
Mechanics, edited by Jose Merodio and Luis Dorfmann, is
dedicated to Professor Ray W. Ogden in recognition of his
transformative research in nonlinear solid mechanics and for
being awarded the William Prager Medal by the Society of
Engineering Sciences in 2010. This special issue of IJNM
contains papers submitted by many of Ray's friends,
collaborators and former students form the around the world to
congratulate him on his scientific career.
