Stochastic continuum model for mycelium-based bio-foam

Mycelium, the root structure of fungi, grows naturally as a biodegradable filamentous material. This unique material has highly heterogeneous microstructure with pronounced spatial variability in density and exhibits strongly non-linear mechanical behavior. In this work we explore the material response in compression, under cyclic deformation, and develop an experimentally-validated multiscale model for its mechanical behavior. The deformation localizes in stochastically distributed sub-domains which eventually percolate to form macroscopic bands of high density material.
