Our papers are the official record of our discoveries. They allow others to build on and apply our work. Each paper is the result of many months of research, so we make a special effort to make them clear, beautiful and inspirational, and publish them in leading journals.
Compact heat exchangers can be designed to run at low power if the exchange is concentrated in a crumpled surface fed by a fractal network.
Fractal structures need very little mass to support a load; but for current designs, this makes them vulnerable to manufacturing errors.
Lognormal distributions (and mixtures of same) are a useful model for the size distribution in emulsions and sediments.
The Eiffel Tower was never intended to be a permanent feature of the Parisian landscape.
We show that self-similar fractal structures exhibit new strength-to-mass scaling relations, offering unprecedented mechanical efficiency.
A material’s architecture can be controlled over an ever increasing set of length scales.
Techniques from random sphere packing predict the dimension of the Apollonian gasket, a fractal made up of non-overlapping hyperspheres.
