Insight into crumpling or compaction of one-dimensional objects is important for understanding biopolymer packaging and designing innovative technological devices. An internationalteam of physicists has now investigated how efficient quasi-one-dimensional objects can be folded. Among them is Dr. Reza Shaebani, principal investigator of project A7 of the SFB 1027. He developped a theoretical model for the compaction of wires. The study has been published in Nature Communications.
