The Bouligand structure found in the appendages of the Mantis Shrimp has been the focus of intensive research in our groups for the last three of years. Understanding the structure-property relationships in these extremely strong biological structures may provide critical insight into the development of the high-performance biomimetic composite materials. This talk will focus on the modeling and mechanical analysis of the impact and periodic regions of this appendage, and how they contribute to this hammer’s high impact and damage tolerant materials behavior. We successfully combined analytical/computational modeling, 3D printing and mechanical testing to evaluate some important hypotheses about the key morphological features of the microstructure and most important toughening mechanisms that are unique in these hierarchical materials.
