  • HIGH DENSITY POLYURETHANE FOAMS

    My PhD project, looking at materials suitable for 3D printing buildings using swarming aerial robots, began with investigating low density, expanding polyurethane foam ‘LD40’ (a) manufactured by the company Isothane. Now it is the turn of high density polyurethane foams,...

  • A very Bavarian Christmas!

    Very early on in deciding to undertake the Erasmus semester I knew I wanted to maximise my cultural experience and spend as much time as physically possible in Germany. Therefore I stayed in Munich over the Christmas holidays in order...

    Hello, Some people have asked me how I travel to university each day, so I thought it would be good to make a storyboard of my journey each morning: This is the building in which I live. It was the first of...

  • Straight into the Labs!

    I am currently in the second month of my PhD project, which will consist of examining materials suitable for 3D printing lightweight structures. The project will be using swarming, coordinated drones to deposit the material rather than current ground based heavy machinery....
