Seminar: Nature’s Multiscale Design Strategies and Additive Manufacturing – Dr. Xiaodong (Chris) Li @ E100 Scott Lab
Oct 31 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Affiliation: University of Virginia

Hosted by: Professor Bharat Bhushan

Description: 

Recent discoveries in seashells unveil that nature uses multiscale design strategies to achieve exceptional mechanical properties which are still beyond the reach of many engineering materials. The multiscale hierarchical structure, ranging from micro lamellae down to nanoparticles, renders seashells multilevel strengthening and toughening mechanisms such as crack deflection, interlocking, lamellae’s deformability, biopolymer’s viscosity, nanoparticle rotation, deformation twining in nanoparticles, and amorphization, jointly contributing to seashell’s ultra-high mechanical robustness. To realize nature’s performance in engineering materials, we need to intelligently design and select materials. This talk will present several case studies in which nature’s multiscale design strategies and materials selection principles are applied through additive manufacturing.
