Development of a morphing wingtip based on compliant structures (2018)
Journal Article
Wang, C., Haddad Khodaparast, H., Friswell, M. I., Shaw, A. D., Xia, Y., & Walters, P. (2018). Development of a morphing wingtip based on compliant structures. Journal of Intelligent Material Systems and Structures, 29(16), 3293-3304. https://doi.org/10.1177/1045389X18783076

© The Author(s) 2018. Compliant structures, such as flexible corrugated panels and honeycomb structures, are promising structural solutions for morphing aircraft. The compliant structure can be tailored to carry aerodynamic loads and achieve the geom... Read More about Development of a morphing wingtip based on compliant structures.

Mapping post-digital practice in the graphic arts (2018)
Journal Article
Laidler, P. (2018). Mapping post-digital practice in the graphic arts. Printmaking Today, 27(106), 15-15

It has been suggested by a range of established commentators that digital technology may have potentially created a ‘mental change’ within the creative process of making images and objects. Although this statement is somewhat broad and our ability to... Read More about Mapping post-digital practice in the graphic arts.

Satisfaction Guaranteed™ (2018)
Journal Article
Laidler, P. (2018). Satisfaction Guaranteed™

A written and illustrated article. Science fiction films have presented us with numerous visions of machines programmed to satisfy our every need. In some instances these needs have been considered in relation to the intimate and physical relations... Read More about Satisfaction Guaranteed™.

Collective dynamics in dispersions of anisometric pigment particles (2018)
Journal Article
May, K., Stannarius, R., Kang, K., Challa, P. K., Sprunt, S., Jakli, A., …Eremin, A. (2018). Collective dynamics in dispersions of anisometric pigment particles. Journal of Molecular Liquids, 267, 322-329. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.molliq.2018.01.172

© 2018 Elsevier B.V. Dynamics of suspensions of solid rodlike pigment particles in a non-polar solvent were studied in a concentration range from the isotropic up to the orientationally ordered nematic-like phase. Using dynamic light scattering and g... Read More about Collective dynamics in dispersions of anisometric pigment particles.

Optical and X-ray scattering studies of the electric field-induced orientational order in colloidal suspensions of pigment nanorods (2018)
Journal Article
Dozov, I., Buluy, O., Aryasova, N., Tereshchenko, O., Kurioz, Y., Nazarenko, V., …Reznikov, Y. (2018). Optical and X-ray scattering studies of the electric field-induced orientational order in colloidal suspensions of pigment nanorods. Journal of Molecular Liquids, 267, 286-296. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.molliq.2018.02.003

© 2018 Elsevier B.V. Under pulsed or a.c. electric fields, colloidal suspensions of nanorods can show strong electro-optic effects, such as the Kerr effect, with fast response times (a few ms), which makes them good candidates for some commercial app...
