About this topic
Naturally occurring materials show exceptional strength and mechanical properties due to their structural design and material composition. Biomimetic designs inspired from biomaterials usually are complex and need advance manufacturing techniques. Additive manufacturing is revolutionizing the manufacturing sector across the globe due its fast pace and low cost. Additive manufacturing offers the opportunity to produce biomimetic materials which is not readily possible with the conventional manufacturing techniques. The mechanical properties of the biomimetic materials can be optimized with the possibilities of having variable properties across the part. The underlying proposal to bridge the biomimetic designs to additive manufacturing offers solutions to many sectors such as automotive, aerospace, medical and electronics. Biomimetic additive manufacturing provides the opportunity to produce finished parts with high fidelity and high tolerance on the properties. The field is still in its infancy though and requires continued research and development.
In this issue, we invite articles which encompass the current developments in the discovery and characterization of new materials design for additive manufacturing inspired by the biomaterials. The scope of the articles includes but is not limited to microscopic characterization, mechanical characterization and failure analysis.
