Prof S Zivanovic
17 February 2019
Location. Engineering, Streatham Campus, Exeter. The University of Exeter’s College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences is inviting applications for a fully-funded PhD studentship to commence on 23 September 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter.
Experimental study on the dynamic properties of spider webs
Dr J Chen, Prof S Garrett
21 January 2019
Spider web is a remarkable structure in nature; ultra-light but very strong. Up to now, the comprehensive effect of silk material properties, viscous silk joints and web lattice structure on the vibration characteristics of the webs has not been exploited yet.
