Welcome to my series of papers under the header "(Not) Safe For Designers?" Here you can find my views on lightweight design, smart materials, engineering bending theory, and much more. The header is deliberate: don't be put off by the equations or the complex concepts from materials science & engineering discussed here - it's all perfectly safe, and will make you a better designer! Consider them my advice for designers who are eager to learn more about structures and materials.  

If you want to order in bulk, for instance to use a paper in your teaching, please contact me.  One NSFD paper is free: the one on referencing. Enjoy, and feel free to get back to me with feedback of any form.
