From three-dimensional weavings to swollen corneocytes

Evans, Myfanwy; Hyde, Stephen


A novel technique to generate three-dimensional Euclidean weavings, composed of close-packed, periodic arrays of one-dimensional fibres, is described. Some of these weavings are shown to dilate by simple shape changes of the constituent fibres (such as fibre straightening). The free volume within a chiral cubic example of a dilatant weaving, the ideal conformation of the G129 weaving related to the ∑+ rod packing, expands more than fivefold on filament straightening. This remarkable...[Show more]
