By stretching a foam ribbon and dissecting leaves, a mathematical model emerges Applied mathematicians dissected the morphology of the plantain lily (Hosta lancifolia), a characteristic long leaf with a saddle-like arc midsection and closely packed ripples along the edges. The simple cause of the lily's fan-like shape"”elastic relaxation resulting from bending during differential growth"”was revealed by using an equally simple technique, stretching foam ribbons. Haiyi Liang, a...

BLOOMINGTON, Ill., June 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Hot, dry weather is causing roads to buckle, creating hazardous driving conditions. The National Weather Service issued heat warnings across the country this week. Temperatures exceeding 90 degrees over several days can lead to road surfaces buckling with little to no warning. When concrete pavement and concrete pavements overlaid with asphalt expand and push up the pavement surface, it is referred to as buckling. There's not much that can be...

Teenage girls experience daily stress caused by responsibilities they take on and how they are viewed by others, a Swedish researcher said. Doctoral student Katarina Haraldsson of the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden conducted in-depth interviews to determine how girls perceive their influence over everyday life. Haraldsson said girls who had voluntarily taken on responsibilities began perceiving their situation as forced when they did not encounter respect from...

Metallic glass that's stronger and lasts longer The normal structure of metals is crystalline. Glass, on the other hand, is amorphous. But it's possible to make amorphous forms of metal, metallic glasses, which can be remarkably strong, having many properties equal to or better than their crystalline metal cousins. The catch is that bulk metallic glasses are highly susceptible to fatigue, a severe problem for their use as structural materials. Now researchers at the U.S. Department of...

By Phillion, A B Lee, P D; Maire, E; Cockcroft, S L Semisolid tensile testing combined with X-ray microtomography (XMT) was used to characterize the development of internal damage as a function of strain in an aluminum-magnesium alloy, AA5182. Novel techniques were developed to allow the quantification of both the size evolution and orientation of the damage to determine mechanisms controlling the early stage growth and localization. During the initial stages of semisolid deformation, it...

By Fukuta, Satoshi Asada, Fumihito; Sasaki, Yasutoshi Abstract The impact of holes drilled into air-dried wood specimens was examined in a closed heating system on the deformation fixation process of compressed wood. Holes were drilled into wood to improve steam permeability, and therein, improve manufacturing efficiency in comparison to conventional processes. The impact of drilled holes on the permeability of water in wood was also examined. The deformations of the wood specimens in the...
