Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Civil & Environmental Engineering
Assistant Pedro Reis describes the research activity in his Elasticity, Geometry, & Statistics Laboratory, which focuses on the mechanics of large deformations of thin structures, towards devising novel functionalities over a wide range of length scales.
A new model developed by Professor Pedro Reis predicts the force required to tie simple knots, may provide guidelines for a given load-bearing application.
Pedro Reis develops predictive formula to characterize fabrication of thin shells, such as chocolate, and enable rapid prototyping.
