Peptide–Graphene Interactions Enhance the Mechanical Properties of Silk Fibroin Studies reveal that biomolecules can form intriguing molecular structures with fascinating functionalities upon interaction with graphene. Then, interesting questions arise. How does silk fibroin interact with graphene? Does such interaction lead to an enhancement in its mechanical properties?

Educational iPad app on structural mechanics

I would like to share with fellow mechanicians an educational iPad app I recently developed. The name of the app is Truss Me! and the main goal is to help students, all the way from high school to college, to build intuition on how truss structures behave. The video below highlights some features of the app:

Faculty Opening in Civil Engineering at JHU

The Department of Civil Engineering at Johns Hopkins University invites applications for an Assistant, Associate, or Full Professor who will strengthen existing departmental efforts in Structures and/or Mechanics of Materials and complement efforts in Systems. 

Special Issue on 'Mechanics of Liquid and Solid Foams' freely available online!

This Special Issue of the International Journal of Solids and Structures includes sixteen articles presented at the international symposium: Mechanics of Liquid and Solid Foams. The symposium was organized under the auspices of the International Union of Theoretical and Applied Mechanics ( and was held at the University of Texas at Austin in May 8-13, 2011. The papers deal with various aspects of mechanical behavior of cellular materials and foams in particular, and represent the state of the art in the field.
