Projects using electromagnetic energy

These are some of the items I worked on as an intern for a lab in the Materials Science & Engineering department at Ohio State. The group I worked with was exploring manufacturing and other practical applications of using electromagnetic energy to form metal, which works when a large amount of

energy is quickly shot through a copper coil. When the copper is coiled around the outside of a tube it causes the tube to crimp inwards (like in the bicycle frame), and when the copper coil is placed inside of a tube it will expand the tube (like in the aluminum and polycarbonate table).
