Concentrated Gaussian curvature in curved creases of actuated spiral nematic solids

no code implementations9 Feb 2021 Fan Feng, Daniel Duffy, John S. Biggins, Mark Warner

Taken together, our results provide new insights in the study of curved creases, lines bearing Gaussian curvature, and their mechanics arising in actuated liquid crystal elastomers/glasses, and other related active systems.

Large deformation analysis of spontaneous twist and contraction in nematic elastomer fibres with helical director

no code implementations17 Dec 2020 Andrea Giudici, John S. Biggins

We then compute the corresponding non-linear elastic energy, which encompasses the Poynting effect, but is minimized by a finite spontaneous twist and stretch.
