SEAS and Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering: Carbon-fiber Epoxy Honeycombs Mimic the Material Performance of Balsa Wood

Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering – In wind farms across North America and Europe, sleek turbines equipped with state-of-the-art technology convert wind energy into electric power. But tucked inside the blades of these feats Read More »
