Abstract: G66.00003 : Bio-inspired Space Filling Fractal Network Metamaterial
11:54 AM–12:06 PM
Results from these studies demonstrate that the space filling fractal designs with higher fractal iterations show enhanced toughness and fracture resistance. Moreover, these enhanced mechanical properties can be systematically tuned by varying the volume fraction of the soft phase and the fractal iteration. The results provide design guidelines for this novel family of architecture materials with remarkable mechanical performance.
