Project: Logic Self-Reporting Metamaterials

Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Thomas Speck

Within the interdisciplinary project Logic Self-Reporting Metamaterials, I investigate the potential of fruit peel as a model for energy dissipation in adaptive composites. In order to study the dissipative and ripening processes in fruit peels, I employ mechanical tests, microscopy and micro-computed tomography to analyse the functional morphology of peels.
