Applications made possible by using Expanded Metal

In 2009, three researchers, Dimas Smith from the Universidad Francisco de Miranda, Carlos Graciano and Gabriela Martinez from the Universidad Simon Bolivar published a paper that discuss the use of expanded metal in engineering applications. While some of the applications discussed were widely known, we appreciated the fact that the paper highlighted the advancements made by the use of expanded metal in applications from several different market sectors.
