Structuring Biomimicry, Improving Building’s Resiliency

Structuring Biomimicry, Improving Building’s Resiliency | Biomimétisme bimimicry | Scoop.it

Imitating nature has become a meaningful approach for contemporary architects and design futurists to the built environment, especially for those who foster a future that doesn’t compete with nature but coexist with it. At the light of recent natural disasters around the world, especially those geologically associated such as tsunamis and earthquakes, which have proven its destruction power over the current built environment; architects and structural engineers have found in biomimicry an ecological approach in order to improve future building’s disaster resilience

Biomimetics as a Tool for the Development of New Materials

Biomimetics as a Tool for the Development of New Materials | Biomimétisme bimimicry | Scoop.it

Biomimetics is on everyone’s lips and it is now difficult to imagine a future where it does not play a key role in the development of our society. The development of new materials is not unconcerned with this new discipline, though we must be aware of what we can obtain (and what we cannot) from imitating Nature’s strategies.

Biomimicry: Inspiring Solar Energy Technology Developments Through Nature

Biomimicry: Inspiring Solar Energy Technology Developments Through Nature | Biomimétisme bimimicry | Scoop.it

The improvements to solar energy technology have been impressive, such as going from the conventional and bulky first generation solar cells/modules to the flexible second generation thin-film solar cells/modules. Accompanying this has been a significant reduction in the cost of manufacturing solar cells and modules, with an average price of roughly US$1 per Watt for first-generation and second-generation modules.

 

With further technological breakthroughs expected in the next few years, the future is rosy for the solar industry. However, instead of patiently waiting for this next wave of advancements, academics have devised ways to further tweak solar energy technology and these tweaks are based on observations in nature.

Scorpions May Have Lessons to Teach Aircraft Designers

Scorpions May Have Lessons to Teach Aircraft Designers | Biomimétisme bimimicry | Scoop.it

The north African desert scorpion, Androctonus australis, is a hardy creature. Most animals that live in deserts dig burrows to protect themselves from the sand-laden wind. Not Androctonus. It usually toughs things out at the surface. Yet when the sand whips by at speeds that would strip paint away from steel, the scorpion is able to scurry off without apparent damage. Han Zhiwu of Jilin University, in China, and his colleagues wondered why.

 

Their curiosity is not just academic. Aircraft engines and helicopter rotor-blades are constantly abraded by atmospheric dust, and a way of slowing down this abrasion would be welcome. Dr Han suspects that scorpions may provide an answer. As he writes in Langmuir, he has discovered that the surface of Androctonus's exoskeleton is odd. And when that oddness is translated into other materials it seems to protect them, as well.

Biomimicry: Nacre Inspires Transparent Strong As Steel Plastic

Biomimicry: Nacre Inspires Transparent Strong As Steel Plastic | Biomimétisme bimimicry | Scoop.it

Nacre, or Mother of pearl is the iridescent lining you see on the inside of an oyster, mussel, or abalone shell. It is also the same material that creates pearls. The play of light we find so appealing is a result of the little beasties engineering the shell down to the molecular level. To create a shell that is tough and lightweight (sometimes 3000 times tougher than its component parts), the abalone layers an organic material and a non-organic material into a nano-structure design resembling brick and mortar. 

 

We have seen before how the abalone inspired super tough materials. Now engineering professor Nicholas Kotov and his team from the University of Michigan have created a process similar to our bivalve friends that allows the creation of materials one nano-layer at a time, with impressive results.

Shadow Pavilion Informed by Biomimicry

Shadow Pavilion Informed by Biomimicry | Biomimétisme bimimicry | Scoop.it

The cellular Shadow Pavilion is the result of simple materials lightly manipulated and connected to dramatic effect. More than one hundred aluminum sheets, laser cut and rolled into cones of various sizes are attached in pre-assembled clusters from offsite. The lowest row buried in the soil of Matthaei Botanical Gardens, Ann Arbor, Michigan anchors the project. PLY Architecture developed the self supporting structure using software modeling to determine shadow patterns, material efficiencies, geometric tethering and assembly.
The focus of meticulous assembly disperses as the pavilion becomes land art, both reflecting and manipulating its surroundings. The design strategy is based on phyllotaxis, the pattern which forms on many flowers and cacti as successive layers of petals, leaves or nodules grow to form a spiral. The interior’s funneled light and water create a micro-environment inside.
