In physics, the concept of “jamming” is defined as a process where granular materials, glasses, foams and other materials become stiff when their density is increased. Now that may sound complicated, but really all it is is the idea that the more stuff you put into a confined space the denser it will become.

Here 3-d printing is being used to dramatically speed up research that will for a foundation of knowledge for designing materials that will have exactly the properties an engineer wants.

Ask ten people “what does sustainability mean to you” and you’ll get ten different answers.  There will be common threads throughout the responses, likely the first things that come to mind like “green”, “renewable”, “LEED”, or “the capacity to endure”.  However, the deeper meaning of sustainability is likely to be missed unless one has been exposed to the building body of knowledge surrounding the theme of sustainability, or it’s close partner resiliency.  Sustainability starts with a mindset, one that begins with the end in mind.
