Mechanical properties news, April 2019

Researchers have developed an organic cathode that dramatically improves the stability and energy density of solid-state sodium-ion batteries.

‘Deep learning’ agents can accurately determine a 2D material's physical characteristics, such as strength, from minimal data on its structure.

A hot-drawing technique for processing plastics can create transparent polythene film that is stronger than aluminium but a fraction of the weight.

Scientists have developed a novel 3D printing process for fabricating flexible conducting fibers on textiles, which can be used to harvest energy.

Engineers have used 4D printing to produce smart materials that can change from stiff to soft in response to temperature changes.
