Experimental investigation of the mechanical stiffness of periodic framework-patterned elastomers

Francois, Nicolas; Arnoux, T; Garcia, L; Hyde, Stephen; Robins, Vanessa; Saadatfar, Mohammad; Saba, M; Senden, Timothy


Recent advances in the cataloguing of three-dimensional nets mean a systematic search for framework structures with specific properties is now feasible. Theoretical arguments about the elastic deformation of frameworks suggest characteristics of mechanically isotropic networks. We explore these concepts on both isotropic and anisotropic networks by manufacturing porous elastomers with three different periodic net geometries. The blocks of patterned elastomers are subjected to a range of...[Show more]
