Description: The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the concept of smart materials and their application to address challenges in environmental engineering. The course will cover three broad categories of smart materials, namely self-healing materials, stimuli-responsive materials, and materials with molecular-recognition capabilities. The use of these materials for structural, sensing, water treatment, and energy applications will be highlighted. The course will emphasize the underlying chemical and thermodynamic principles driving the behavior and responses of smart materials. Cross-list: CEVE 426.
