Biomimicry for Materials Design and Habitats

Biomimicry for Materials, Design and Habitats: Innovations and Applications in Materials, Design and the Built Environment is a survey of the recent work of recognized experts in a variety of fields who employ biomimicry and related paradigms to solve key problems of interest within science, technology, and society. Topics covered include innovations from biomimicry in materials, product design, architecture, and biological sciences. The book is a useful resource for researchers, engineers, and materials scientists, taking them from the theory behind biomimicry to real world applications. Nonlinear multifunctional systems that have a symbiotic relationship with their environment are the domain of nature. Living systems have evolved innovative solutions to challenges that humans face on a daily basis. Mosquitos can teach us to make hypodermic needles, jet engines can learn from harbor seal whiskers, and cacti may show us how to extract water from Mars. Therefore, it is in nature that we seek inspiration for the solutions to tomorrow's challenges. Presents new directions and the various applications of biomimicry within industry Discusses the role of biomimicry in innovation and product design Covers applications in systems engineering and design, novel materials and structures design, and architecture and life in hostile environments Includes perspectives on sustainability and the incorporation of biomimicry into that realm

Laser powder bed fusion of metals is a technology that makes use of a laser beam to selectively melt metal powder layer-by-layer in order to fabricate complex geometries in high performance materials. The technology is currently transforming aerospace and biomedical manufacturing and its adoption is widening into other industries as well, including automotive, energy, and traditional manufacturing. With an increase in design freedom brought to bear by additive manufacturing, new opportunities are emerging for designs not possible previously and in

It is clear that the climate is changing and ecosystems are becoming severely degraded. Humans must mitigate the causes of, and adapt to, climate change and the loss of biodiversity, as the impacts of these changes become more apparent and demand urgent responses. These pressures, combined with rapid global urbanisation and population growth mean that new ways of designing, retrofitting and living in cities are critically needed. Incorporating an understanding of how the living world works and what ecosystems do

The approach to the habitat as an entity inscribed in nature and exemplified by a review of the work of Frederick Kiesler, architect and artist, is especially timely due to the moment of crisis that contemporary architecture is going through. Also, the delicate situation of our planet Earth, where destructive constructions, market processes, artificial materials and a myriad of economic and social circumstances have led to the decline of resources and an unsustainable system in many areas. Problems, such as

Engineering Design and Mathematical Modelling: Concepts and Applications consists of chapters that span the Engineering design and mathematical modelling domains. Engineering design and mathematical modelling are key tools/techniques in the Science, Technology and Innovation spheres. Whilst engineering design is concerned with the creation of functional innovative products and processes, mathematical modelling seeks to utilize mathematical principles and concepts to describe and control real world phenomena. Both of these can be useful tools for spurring and hastening progress in developing

Planners, architects, and designers can have a great impact on living environments and well-being. Well-being is a natural outcome of natural living, but it is important to realize that a real and comprehensive understanding of well-being can only be achieved through the continuity of the concept to all environmental scales starting from the biosphere and leading towards interiors. Since interior space is one of the most important determinants of our everyday experiences, its role in well-being as a conscious construct

There is mounting evidence that ever-increasing consumption in the developed world is leading us down a path to ecological collapse, and doing our society no favours. Design and architecture are often willing accomplices in consolidating the deep social and political problems of spiralling consumption. But how does sustainable consumption affect design, and what role can design play in bringing about change? Designing De-growth argues that, rather than being a threat to design, an absolute decline in material consumption offers up
