1 MetaMesh : a Hierarchical Computational Model for Design and Fabrication of Biomimetic Armor Surfaces

Abstract

Many exoskeletons exhibit multifunctional performance by combining protection from rigid ceramic components with flexibility through articulated interfaces. Structure-to-function relationships of these natural bioarmors have been studied extensively, and initial development of structural (load-bearing) bioinspired armor materials, most often nacremimetic… (More)
