Mechanical properties news, December 2018

Oscillating loads at certain frequencies can lead to several-fold increases in the strength of composites that contain a molecular layer of ‘nanoglue’.

2018 Materials Today Innovation Award winner announced

Congratulations to Prof M Stanley Whittingham.

Inspired by animal chirps, engineers have devised a faster and more accurate rheological technique for measuring the properties of soft materials.

Scientists have used magnetic fields to create liquid crystal elastomers that can move in any direction in response to multiple types of stimuli.

Scientists have developed a liquid crystal elastomer with auxetic properties, meaning it gets thicker when stretched.

Echolocation for soft materials

Researchers have accomplished the first detailed high-speed imaging and analysis of the process that occurs when a microparticle impacts a surface.

making tiny, nanoscale holes into graphene sheets and removing them again could hold the key to manufacturing high-quality structures
