Baromorphs: pneumatic shape morphing elastomers

Although bending a sheet of paper into a cylinder or a conical hat is quite easy, bending the same sheet in two simultaneous directions is not possible without crumples. However Nature is full of (...)


Study shows glass surfaces retain memory

A study published today has revealed that glass surfaces can retain a memory of the direction of flow of the glass in its past liquid state. This surprising conclusion is the result of a (...)


Des surfaces ultra glissantes bioinspirées

Inspirés par une plante carnivore qui capture des fourmis en les faisant glisser sur sa paroi, des scientifiques du Laboratoire PMMH (ESPCI Paris / PSL / CNRS) et du LadHyX (Ecole Polytechnique / (...)

Review article: On the diverse roles of fluid dynamic drag in animal swimming and flying

R. Godoy-Diana & B. Thiria. J. Roy. Soc. Interface 15 20170715 (2018)
[doi:10.1098/rsif.2017.0715]
When a body moves through a fluid, drag is often thought as a dissipative source that has perpetually to be overcome to sustain motion injecting... (...)


Giant ripples on comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko sculpted by sunset thermal wind

Pan Jia, Bruno Andreotti, and Philippe Claudin, PNAS (2017)
Abstract:
Explaining the unexpected presence of dune-like patterns at the surface of the comet 67P/Churyumov–Gerasimenko requires conceptual and quantitative advances in the understanding ... (...)


Bioinspired turbine blades offer new perspectives for wind energy

V. Cognet, S. Courrech du Pont, I. Dobrev, F. Massouh, B. Thiria; Proc. Roy. Soc. A, 473, (2017)
Wind energy is becoming a significant alternative solution for future energy production. Modern turbines now benefit from engineering expertise, and... (...)


Texture-driven elastohydrodynamic bouncing

Thibault Chastel, Philippe Gondret and Anne Mongruel: Journal of Fluid Mechanics, Volume 805 October 2016, pp. 577-590
We investigate in detail the dynamics of bouncing of a fluid-immersed solid sphere onto a textured wall at moderate Reynolds and... (...)
