ASME Virginia Section: Natural Structural Materials: Lessons on Toughening Mechanisms, Weight Reduction, and Multifunctionality
November 17 7:00PM - November 17 8:00PM, 2021
17 November 7:00 - 17 November 8:00, 2021
We welcome you to join us for an exciting presentation about ground-breaking research being done by Dr. Ling Li and his team at Virginia Tech! This presentation will cover their studies of structural materials found in biological organisms, and how this knowledge can lead to the development of bio-inspired materials. In this talk, Dr. Li will present his team's recent work in elucidating the fundamental structure-property relationships in some natural structural materials by focusing on their strategies in achieving damage tolerance, weight reduction, and multifunctionality. His research has been published in Science, PNAS, Nature Materials, Nature Communication, and etc., which are widely reported by many media outlets, such as ScienceDaily, Yahoo News, Discovery News, etc. We hope you can join us for this event!
