Известно, что если на плоскости имеется конечный набор выпуклых тел, внутренности которых не перекрываются, то среди этих тел имеется хотя бы одно крайнее — такое, которое можно непрерывно переместить “на бесконечность” (за пределы большого шара, содержащего остальные тела), оставляя все остальные тела неподвижными. При этом если все эти тела являются шарами, то и в пространстве любой размерности можно найти тело, которое уносится “на бесконечность” (см. [15… Expand


The principle of topological interlocking in extraterrestrial construction
Abstract Applications of a newly established principle of topological interlocking to different types of extraterrestrial construction are considered. Topological interlocking arises when elements ofExpand
Adaptive mechanical properties of topologically interlocking material systems
Topologically interlocked material systems are two-dimensional granular crystals created as ordered and adhesion-less assemblies of unit elements of the shape of platonic solids. The assembly resistsExpand
Deformation mechanics of non-planar topologically interlocked assemblies with structural hierarchy and varying geometry
This study highlights the possibility of tailoring the mechanical response of topological interlocking assemblies using geometrical features of both the element geometry and the contact surface profile. Expand
Manufacture and Mechanics of Topologically Interlocked Material Assemblies
Topologically interlocked material (TIM) systems are load-carrying assemblies of unit elements interacting by contact and friction. TIM assemblies have emerged as a class of architectured materialsExpand
Impact mechanics of topologically interlocked material assemblies
Abstract The objective of the present study is to provide understanding of potential energy absorption and dissipation mechanisms and benefits of topologically interlocked material (TIM) assembliesExpand
Transverse loading of cellular topologically interlocked materials
Abstract Topologically interlocked materials (TIMs) are a class of materials made by a structured assembly of an array of identically shaped and sized unit elements that are held in a confiningExpand
Toughening by Fragmentation—How Topology Helps
In this brief overview, we present recent work on the novel concept of topological interlocking as a means of designing new materials and structures. Starting from a special self-supportingExpand
Structural integrity during remanufacture of a topologically interlocked material
Purpose – Topologically interlocked materials are a class of materials in which individual unit elements interact with each other through contact only. Cracks and other defects occurring due toExpand
Topological interlocking of protective tiles for the space shuttle
We propose a new concept of design of heat- and impact-resistant tile covering for space shuttles based upon topological interlocking of tiles. The key features of this type of tiling are as follows:Expand
Topological interlocking of platonic solids: A way to new materials and structures
The structural integrity of natural and engineered materials relies on chemical or mechanical bonding between the building blocks of which they consist. Materials whose building blocks are notExpand
