Jan. 29, 2021
Jheng-Wun Su, a Slippery Rock University assistant professor of physics and engineering, co-authored four papers that were published by four different peer-reviewed journals within a one-month span.
Su’s papers include:
- “4D Printing of shape-memory polymeric scaffolds for adaptive biomedical implantation,” published Dec. 21 by Acta Biomaterialia.
- “4D Printing Elastic Composites for Strain-Tailored Multistable Shape Morphing,” published Dec. 16 by the American Chemical Society Applied Materials & Interfaces journal.
- “A machine learning workflow for 4D printing: understand and predict morphing behaviors of printed active structures,” published Dec. 9 by Smart Materials and Structures.
- “Effects of ingredients and pre-heating on the printing quality and dimensional stability in 3D printing of cookie dough,” published Nov. 26 by the Journal of Food Engineering.
All the papers were related to 4D printing, which refers to computerized printing techniques to create an object that is able to change its shape or properties in a predictable way over time in reaction to conditions such as exposure to water, air, heat or an electric current. Su was listed as the lead author in the paper published in Smart Materials and Structures.
