Bio-Inspired Study on the Structure and Process of Smart Materials and Structures
- 182 Downloads
The trend of development of structural materials in the new century can be expected to be composite, intelligent, multifunctional and ecological. Compared with other materials, the most conspicuous feature of biomaterials is the function of selfadjustment, i.e. being living organisms, biomaterials can adjust their physical and mechanical properties in some way to fit the environmental conditions. One of the outstanding features of an organism is its ability for regeneration. The organism itself can repair a fracture after the injury occurs. The purpose of our work is to investigate their structural and functional features and apply them to the design and manufacturing of advanced smart materials .
