Following the Taoist aim at simplicity, I have redesigned the website with a simpler layout, and cleared up all the pages from redundancies. Hopefully now everything is more accessible, go and have a look!
Here is my newest paper! “Thermomechanical generation of fissure patterns on the surface of heated circular wood samples” https://arxiv.org/abs/1709.03546 We discuss the observation of primary crack patterns on the surface of heated medium density fiberboard (MDF) round samples in inert atmosphere. A constant heat flux irradiates the wood surface, and the primary cracks seem to… Read More My new article on materials science
“Are theoretical researches based on oversimplified methods which return wrong predictions? Do empiric approaches lack rigour and scientific depth? Is there any gap between theory and practice, and why?”. Through our academic work, me and my colleagues at the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering, Aalto University, have noticed that far too often, separation of research fields and approaches results in uncorrelated… Read More Are there any issues in contemporary science and engineering?
Trying to make my own opinion on this debate. What do you people think?
