  • Abstract Silks from the spider's orb-web are amongst the very best structural materials produced by nature: spiders can produce a large aerial filter from a minimal amount of material. By studying how the structure and properties of silks are matched to their mechanical function, we can increase our general understanding of structure-property relationships in fibrous polymers.
