Paper on Chiral Rods in Extreme Mechanics Letters

Plants bend and twist when they are subjected to wind and gravity, even more so when their structure is chiral, i.e., twisted along its axis. In this paper published in Extreme Mechanics Letters, we investigate the effect of chirality on the bending and twisting deformation of a rod and a ribbon in a wind tunnel.
