  • Cell geometry across the ring structure of Sitka spruce. 

    Reynolds, TPS; Burridge, HC; Johnston, R; Wu, G; Shah, DU; Scherman, OA; Linden, PF et al. (The Royal Society, 2018-05)
    For wood to be used to its full potential as an engineering material, it is necessary to quantify links between its cell geometry and the properties it exhibits at bulk scale. Doing so will make it possible to predict ...
  • Chemical composition of processed bamboo for structural applications. 

    Sharma, Bhavna; Shah, Darshil U; Beaugrand, Johnny; Janeček, Emma-Rose; Scherman, Oren A; Ramage, Michael H (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2018)
    Natural materials are a focus for development of low carbon products for a variety of applications. To utilise these materials, processing is required to meet acceptable industry standards. Laminated bamboo is a commercial ...
  • Measuring light in field experiments using dummies and objects: A study of concert lighting 

    Lo, VWL; Steemers, KA (SAGE Publications, 2018)
    <jats:p> Lighting experiments were performed in a real context populated with dummies and objects. Using the King’s College Chapel in Cambridge as a case study, two field surveys of concert lighting were performed, one ...
  • Biomimetic Supramolecular Fibers Exhibit Water-Induced Supercontraction. 

    Wu, Yuchao; Shah, Darshil U; Wang, Baoyuan; Liu, Ji; Ren, Xiaohe; Ramage, Michael H; Scherman, Oren A (Wiley, 2018-07)
    Spider silk is a fascinating material, combining high strength and elasticity that outperforms most synthetic fibers. Another intriguing feature of spider silk is its ability to "supercontract," shrinking up to 50% when ...
