Additive manufacturing of biologically-inspired composites
Prof. André Studart (ETH Zurich, Switzerland)
Composite materials in nature exhibit heterogeneous architectures that are tuned to fulfill the functional demands of the surrounding environment. Examples range from the cellulose-based organic structure of plants to highly mineralized collagen-based skeletal parts like bone and teeth.
