An all-natural bioinspired structural material for plastic replacement, Guan, Yang, Han, Ling, Yu, Nature Communications, 2020

Novelty/impact/significance:

A strong (stiffness 20 GPa and strength 281 MPa), tough (11.5 MPa m1/2), lightweight (1.7 g/cm3), and thermal-resistant (thermal expansion coefficient 7x10-6K-1) composite material is created, using all-natural raw materials through a mass-producible method.

Is the Bouligand architecture tougher than regular cross-ply laminates? Adiscrete element method study, Pro and Barthelat, Extreme Mechanics Letters, 2020

Novelty/impact/significance:

With capturing the main mechanisms, it is revealed that the Bouligand structure outperforms the cross-ply (0°/90°) for any crack orientation, while the former is more isotropic in-plane in stiffness and toughness.

Heterogeneous lamella structure unites ultrafine-grain strength with coarse-grain ductility, Wu, Yang, Yuan, Wu Wei, Huang, Zhu, PNAS, 2015

Novelty/impact/significance:

A novel heterogeneous lamella structure in Ti is created, which is as strong as the ultrafine-grained Ti and simultaneously as ductile as the coarse-grained Ti, with higher strain hardening than the coarse-grained Ti.

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).
