Strong Adhesion in 3D Printing of Soft Materials

(Yang et al Adv. Funct. Mater. 2019, 1901721). In our new paper, strong adhesion is achieved in integrated structures of a hydrogel and an elastomer extrusion-printed in arbitrary sequence.

Parameters controlling the strength of stochastic fibrous materials

Many materials of everyday use are fibrous and their strength is important in most applications. In this work we study the dependence of the strength of random fiber networks on structural parameters such as the network density, cross-link density, fiber tortuosity, and the strength of the inter-fiber cross-links. Athermal networks of cellular and fibrous type are considered. We conclude that the network strength scales linearly with the cross-link number density and with the cross-link strength for a broad range of network parameters, and for both types of networks considered.

PhD position: In-situ micromechanical testing

IMPACT is an international Multiscale Materials Testing Research Group at Tampere University. Our work focuses on microscopic and macroscopic mechanical testing of materials at different strain rates and temperatures. We focus on improving the basic scientific understanding of material behaviour under extreme conditions and solving practical industrial problems involving high rate material deformation. IMPACT is looking to hire a Doctoral Researcher (PhD student) in the field of Materials Science to work on micromechanics of materials studied under extreme deformation conditions.
