Recently, many research results in nanotechnology are used for development of mechanical devices and systems. In this course,in order to understand the state-of-art nanotechnologies for mechanical engineering, nanotechnology researches which have been done in national institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) are lectured by the invited AIST researchers. (intensive course)
At the end of this course, students will understand:
1)The method of analyzing dynamic behavior of mechanical devices and systems in a microscopic region at the level of molecule and atom.
2)The structure of mechanical systems from the points of view of mechanical strength and dynamics of the microscopic region.
Micro machine, Micro/nano phenomena, Macro, Nanotechnology, Mechanical devices, Mechanical systems
