  • Effect of heterogeneity on the elastic properties of auxetic materials 

    Gaspar, N.; Smith, Christopher W.; Evans, Kenneth E. (American Institute of Physics, 2003)
    Auxetic materials are gaining practical interest for their unusual and sometimes extreme mechanical response. The process of modeling these materials so far has highlighted a number of microstructural properties that are ...
  • Simulated Optimisation of Disordered Structures with negative Poisson’s ratios 

    Horrigan, E.J.; Smith, Christopher W.; Scarpa, F.; Gaspar, N.; Javadi, Akbar A.; Berger, M.A.; Evans, Kenneth E. (Elsevier, 2009)
    Two-dimensional regular theoretical units that give a negative Poisson’s ratio (NPR) are well documented and well understood. Predicted mechanical properties resulting from these models are reasonably accurate in two ...
