Abstract The structural constituents of tissues in organisms are composed primarily of minerals and proteins. Collagen is the most common protein used to construct such natural materials in vertebrates; among these structures, a wide variety of hierarchical architectures with structural and property gradients have evolved to induce desired combinations of stiffness, strength, ductility and toughness for a diverse range of mechanical functionalities. The soft collagen provides biological material...

Abstract High-entropy alloys (HEAs), also known as multi-principal element alloys or multi-component alloys, have been the subject of numerous investigations since they were first described in 2004. The earliest HEA was the equiatomic CrMnFeCoNi “Cantor” alloy, but HEAs now encompass a broad class of metallic and ceramic systems. The concept of utilizing the high entropy of mixing to develop stable multi-element alloys may not be scientifically correct but has produced extraordinary mechanical p...

Abstract Skin, the outermost layer of the body, fulfills a broad range of functions, protecting internal organs from damage and infection, while regulating the body’s temperature and water content via the exchange of heat and fluids. It must be able to withstand and recover from extensive deformation and damage that can occur during growth, movement, and potential injuries. A detailed investigation of the evolution of the collagen architecture of the dermis as a function of deformation is conduc...

Abstract The fragmentation of materials is a complex sequence of physical processes in which the kinetic energy is converted into deformation and fracture energy. The incorporation of reactive mixtures adds a third form of energy, chemical energy. The fragmentation and mechanical performance of nickel-aluminum compacts was examined under dynamic conditions using mesostructured powder compacts in which the interfaces between the powders (having initial sizes between 355 and 500 µm) were tailored ...

Abstract Woodpeckers peck at trees without any reported brain injury despite undergoing high impact loads. Amongst the adaptations allowing this is a highly functionalized impact-absorption system consisting of the head, beak, tongue and hyoid bone. This study aims to examine the anatomical structure, composition, and mechanical properties of the skull to determine its potential role in energy absorption and dissipation. An acorn woodpecker and a domestic chicken are compared through micro-compu...

Abstract We examine the effect of grain size on the dynamic failure of tantalum during laser-shock compression and release and identify a significant effect of grain size on spall strength, which is opposite to the prediction of the Hall-Petch relationship because spall is primarily intergranular in both poly and nanocrystalline samples; thus, monocrystals have a higher spall strength than polycrystals, which, in turn, are stronger in tension than ultra-fine grain sized specimens. Post-shock cha...
