A generic linear non-causal optimal control framework integrated with wave excitation force prediction for multi-mode wave energy converters with application to M4
The multi-float multi-mode wave energy converter (M-WEC) M4 has essentially linear hydrodynamics characteristics in operational and even extreme waves. This is in contrast to point-absorber and most raft-type devices where ...
GPER Activation Inhibits Cancer Cell Mechanotransduction and Basement Membrane Invasion via RhoA.
The invasive properties of cancer cells are intimately linked to their mechanical phenotype, which can be regulated by intracellular biochemical signalling. Cell contractility, induced by mechanotransduction of a stiff ...

Biofunctional Silk Kirigami With Engineered Properties.
The fabrication of multifunctional materials that interface with living environments is a problem of great interest. A variety of structural design concepts have been integrated with functional materials to form biodevices ...
The role of hairs in the adhesion of octopus suckers: a hierarchical peeling approach.
Organisms like the octopus or the clingfish are a precious source of inspiration for the design of innovative adhesive systems based on suction cups, but a complete mechanical description of their attachment process is ...
Scalable angular adaptivity for Boltzmann transport
