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...

Freeze casting under external fields (magnetic, electric, or acoustic) produces porous materials having local, regional, and global microstructural order in specific directions. In freeze casting, porosity is typically formed by the directional solidification of a liquid colloidal suspension. Adding external fields to the process allows for structured nucleation of ice and manipulation of particles during solidification. External control over the distribution of particles is governed by a compet...

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 Nature has evolved ingenious armour designs, like the flexible carapaces of armadillo and boxfish consisting of hexagonal segments connected by collagen fibres, that serve as bioinspiration for modern ballistic armours. Here, Finite element modelling (FEM) used to analyze the effect of scale geometry and other impact parameters on the ballistic protection provided by a bioinspired segmented ceramic armour. For this purpose, the impact of cylindrical fragment simulating projectiles (FSPs...

Aves are an incredibly diverse class of animals, ranging greatly in size and thriving in a wide variety of environments. Here, we explore the scaling trends of bird wings in connection with their flight performance. The tensile strength of avian bone is hypothesized to be a limiting factor in scaling the humerus with mass, which is corroborated by its experimentally determined allometric scaling trend. We provide a mechanics analysis that explains the scaling allometry of the wing humerus length...
