Some short ideas on long hair

Thierry Charitat

Abstract: We study the compression of bundles of aligned macroscopic fibers with intrin- sic shape disorder, as found in human hair and in many other natural and man- made systems. We show by a combination of experiments, numerical simulations and theory how the statistical properties of the shapes of the fibers control the col- lective mechanical behaviour of the bundles. This work paves the way for designing aligned fibrous matter with pre-required properties from large numbers of individual strands of selected geometry and rigidity.
