    • Embracing Compliance and Instabilities to Achieve Function in Mechanical Metamaterials and Devices 

      Overvelde, Johannes (2016-04-26)
      The use of soft materials has led to the development of soft devices that have the potential to be more robust, adaptable, and safer for human interaction than traditional rigid systems. State-of-the-art developments push ...
    • MeshVoro: A three-dimensional Voronoi mesh building tool for the TOUGH family of codes 

      Freeman, C.M.; Boyle, K.L; Reagan, M.; Johnson, J; Rycroft, Christopher; Moridis, G.J. (Elsevier BV, 2014)
      Few tools exist for creating and visualizing complex three-dimensional simulation meshes,and these have limitations that restrict their application to particular geometries and circumstances. Mesh generation needs to trend ...
    • On a boundary layer problem related to the gas flow in shales 

      Barenblatt, G. I.; Monteiro, P. J. M.; Rycroft, Christopher (Springer Nature, 2013)
      The development of gas deposits in shales has become a significant energy resource. Despite the already active exploitation of such deposits, a mathematical model for gas flow in shales does not exist. Such a model is ...
    • Rapid disorganization of mechanically interacting systems of mammary acini 

      Shi, Qianyun; Ghosh, R. P.; Engelke, H.; Rycroft, Christopher; Cassereau, L.; Sethian, J. A.; Weaver, V. M.; Liphardt, J. T. (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, 2013)
      Cells and multicellular structures can mechanically align and concentrate fibers in their ECM environment and can sense and respond to mechanical cues by differentiating, branching, or disorganizing. Here we show that ...
