DEMO: Computational Colloids Software

13 Jul , 2016   Video

In preparation for SEED 2016 we have released this video of our demo modelling application which allows us to test loading different scenarios for a 10x10x10m volume of soil. We visualise both static stresses as well as dynamic pore pressures and use these values to map on to gene expression values related to gene expression […]

DEMO: E.coli CAD

10 Mar , 2016   Video

This is an early forerunner for the Computational Colloids project. E.coli CAD is a prototype software which models forces applied to soils  and areas of high pore pressure associated with the load. The demo also allows the user to adjust pore sizes and increase of decrease volumes of bacteria in the soils. The software was produced by […]

Paper: Constructing Buildings on Mars

6 Dec , 2015  

OverviewforPPT

Our Radical Vernacular paper has been published in JBIS. The abstract and download is below: Our current speculative discourse on the colonisation of other planets tends to consider future buildings through the lens of hi- tech architecture. However, we suggest that developments in biotechnology will enable types of construction which are beyond even our current […]
