Prof. Saeid Sahmani, the faculty member in the School of Science and Technology of UG has recently published an article in the journal of Applied Mechanics Reviews having the impact factor of 11.345 which is one of the top ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) journals.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) is the premier professional membership organization for more than 130,000 mechanical engineers and associated members worldwide. ASME also conducts one of the largest technical publishing operations in the world, offering thousands of titles including some of the profession's most prestigious journals, conference proceedings, and ASME Press books. Applied Mechanics Reviews is an international review journal of ASME that serves as a premier venue for dissemination of material across all sub-disciplines of applied mechanics and engineering science. The journal provides an archival repository for state-of-the-art and retrospective survey articles and reviews of research areas and curricular developments. It invites topical reviews that serve to document recent progress in emerging and long-standing areas of applied mechanics; describe analytical, numerical, and experimental techniques; and point to the need for continued research.
The article, published in this journal by Prof. Saeid Sahmani, presents a comprehensive discussion on the fundamental concepts, innovations, and applications of triboelectric nanogenerators. Triboelectric nanogenerators, as a revolutionary power generation technology, were introduced in 2012 and are characterized as devices that efficiently generate electrical energy from kinetic energy in the environment. In conclusion, triboelectric nanogenerator is a crucial and alluring technology with the benefits of low cost, simple structure, easy fabrication, high efficiency, and relatively high output energy. Likewise, this study describes and offers concepts for future research on the important applications of triboelectric nanogenerators, including high voltage power supply, blue energy, self-power sensors, and micro/nano energy as cutting-edge technologies.
