Simultaneous improvements of strength and toughness in topologically interlocked ceramics, Mirkhalaf, Zhou, Barthelat, PNAS, 2018

Novelty/impact/significance:

Develop a topologically interlocked material (TIM) design that is tougher (25-50X) and stronger (1.2X) than the monolithic plates with the same material (increasing impact resistance without sacrificing strength/toughness).

Hierarchically enhanced impact resistance of bioinspired composites, Gu, Takaffoli, Buehler, Advanced Materials, 2017

Novelty/impact/significance:

A methodology combining simulation, additive manufacturing of biomimetic structures, and mechanical testing is developed, and the function of structural hierarchy is explicated. The findings provide insightful guidance for designing future protective materials and devices.

Design of robust superhydraphobic surfaces, Dehui Wang, Zuankai Wang, Robin H.A. Ras, Xu Deng, et al., Nature, 2020

Superhydrophobic surfaces have promising applications in various medical and engineering applications; however, these surfaces, either via physical and/or chemical methods, suffer from one major flaw- extremely vulnerable to mechanical damage, so lose superhydrophobicity easily in practice.

Impact-resistant nacre-like transparent materials, Yin, Hannard, Barthelat, Science, 2019

 

Novelty/impact/significance:

Propose and fabricate nacre-inspired glass panels (50x50x3) that possess large-scale tablet sliding toughening mechanism, is 2-3 times more impact resistant than conventional laminated and tempered glass, and maintains transparency, high strength/stiffness.
