IntroductionThe main goal of the Biomicromechanics Laboratory in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Taiwan University is to open doors to exciting possibilities of discovering new biological phenomena and mechanisms that classical physics cannot touch by means of mechanics research at microscopic scales. Based on computational mechanics, experiments can be guided through understanding particular principles at various environmental conditions. Furthermore, computation work inevitably needs to be validated by several experimental tests. Therefore, research activities in this laboratory consist of theoretical, experimental, and computational mechanics studies. The current research areas include Biomicromechanics, Mechanics of fluid-structure interaction, Mechanics of engineering design, Microfluidics and Bio atomic force microscopy in applied sciences and engineering.
Our Biomicromechanics laboratory has been launched in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Taiwan University since February 1st of 2020.
Our research article - "Robust Topology Optimization of Solid Continua for Peak Response Serviceability to Uncertain Quasi-Static Loads with Temporal Correlation" has been published in the Journal - Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization.
Prof. Chien-Kai Wang's research proposal - "Mechanics of Robust Optimization for Solid Continua and Structural Systems under Loading Uncertainties" has been approved for grant by the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST), Taiwan (R.O.C.).
Prof. Chien-Kai Wang's research application - "Toward Solving Inverse Problems in Anisotropic Mechanical Properties of Cells by Microfluidics" for the visiting scholar program has been admitted for the year of 2019 by Academia Sinica, Taiwan (R.O.C.).
Our research article - "Structural Optimization with Design Constraints on Peak Responses to Temporally Correlated Quasi-Static Load Processes" has been published for publication in the Journal - Structural and Multidisciplinary Optimization.
