This paper reviews the research progress made in China regarding the microstructure of the forewing trabeculae, their anti-peeling and anti-collisional mechanical properties, the three-dimensional (3D) microstructures of the forewings, their modeling, and their mechanical properties. We focus on 1) the distribution of the trabeculae in two types of beetles with a six-fold difference in density, the structure of the trabeculae and a proposed 3D model with an integrated trabeculae-honeycomb… CONTINUE READING
