Effective elastic properties of 3D printed auxetic metamaterials

Mechanical metamaterials are artificially produced structures that derive their properties from their periodically repeated structure rather than from mechanical properties of their base material. Often, these structures are manufactured by 3D printing. Nowadays the additive manufacturing technology can be...

Myosin, numerical position determination and mechanical properties

Myosin is a superfamily of molecular motor [3]. Especially, myosin II is able to generate force for a muscle contraction by sliding on an actin filament. To extract energy, the myosin motor has to hydrolyze adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to adenosine diphosphate (ADP). The energy...
