About the Authors
  • Master simple to advanced biomaterials and structures with this essential text. Featuring topics ranging from bionanoengineered materials to bio-inspired structures for spacecraft and bio-inspired robots, and covering issues such as motility, sensing, control and morphology, this highly illustrated text walks the reader through key scientific and practical engineering principles, discussing properties, applications and design. Presenting case studies for the design of materials and structures at the nano, micro, meso and macro-scales, and written by some of the leading experts on the subject, this is the ideal introduction to this emerging field for students in engineering and science as well as researchers.

    • Features examples of inter-disciplinary and multidisciplinary approaches to bio-inspired structures and design
    • Provides physical basis for the design of bio-inspired structures with theory
    • Guides readers in achieving fundamental understanding of structures and their effects on the properties of hard and soft tissues

    Reviews & endorsements

    ‘Nature is our best teacher. It is cyclic, and it heals and sustains itself. This compendium of chapters on bio-inspired structures and design is an inspirational collection that validate the supremacy of nature as the master teacher for clever design and the magic of natural materials. Kudos to Soboyejo and Daniel for presenting to us this compelling story.’ Diran Apelian, University of California, Irvine

    ‘… An overall highly impressive [book], with a breadth of topics, that contains a wealth of information of value to the interested and inquisitive reader, scientist, engineer and researcher. The editors have to be commended and applauded for putting together this [book].’ T. S. Srivatsan, University of Akron, Ohio
