Thank you for visiting the Nonlinear Mechanics Lab! We study emerging topics in nonlinear science, with a specific focus on nonlinear wave propagation and topological acoustics. The lab is presently making fundamental contributions to the understanding of the role nonlinearities can play in managing and controlling wave propagation, to include amplitude-dependent inducing of topological change in nonlinear periodic media, active control of topological interfaces via electroacoustic actuation, passive breaking of acoustic reciprocity using nonlinearities and asymmetry, and nonlinear logic devices for acoustic computation. Applications of these technologies are being sought in communication devices, sensing systems, and smart structures.
