This book lays down the foundation on the mechanics and design of auxetic solids and structures, solids that possess negative Poisson's ratio. It will benefit two groups of readers: (a) industry practitioners, such as product and structural designers, who need to control mechanical stress distributions using auxetic materials, and (b) academic researchers and students who intend to produce unique mechanical and other physical properties of structures using auxetic materials.
Dr. T.C. Lim earned his PhD in the area of material mechanics in 2001, and thereafter pioneered auxetic solids research in Asia. In addition to being Asia's leading researcher in the area of auxetic solids, Dr. Lim is also a pioneer and one of the world leaders in the area of semi-auxetics. Dr. Lim has been serving as a scientific comm...
