- ... ‘Wine-rack’ motifs are formally shown to exhibit the unexpected property of a negative Poisson’s ratio (auxetic behaviour) for loading in particular directions. This property is confirmed through the analysis of analytical expressions for the in-plane off-axis mechanical properties derived for an idealised hinging wine-rack model as well as through molecular simulations of nanoscale molecular syst ...
