Many biological materials such as bone, teeth and nacre exhibit superior mechanical strength and toughness. These materials share similar hierarchical arrangement that stiff blocks are embedded in a
Exploring the Fracture Toughness of Tessellated Materials With the Discrete-Element Method
Architectured materials contain highly controlled structures and morphological features at length scales intermediate between the microscale and the size of the component. In dense architectured

Strain rate hardening: a hidden but critical mechanism for biological composites?
TLDR
This model captures the conditions for either spreading of deformations or localization, which determines whether a staggered composite is brittle or deformable at the macroscale, and shows that strain rate hardening is a powerful source of large deformations for the material.
The impact of stochastic microstructures on the macroscopic fracture properties of brick and mortar composites
Abstract This paper examines the effect of non-uniform microstructures on the macroscopic fracture properties of idealized brick and mortar composites, which consist of rigid bricks bonded with

Tablet-level origin of toughening in abalone shells and translation to synthetic composite materials.
TLDR
In situ atomic force microscopy fracture experiments and digital image correlation are used to quantitatively prove that brick morphology leads to transverse dilation and subsequent interfacial hardening during sliding, a previously hypothesized dominant toughening mechanism in nacre.
