How nature inspires strong, lightweight material for planes, buildings and bone implants

Designed to mimic bone, wood and other natural materials, the porous objects are lighter than traditional products and can be strategically inserted into structures to provide higher stiffness in areas with high demand. Credit: Paulino et al

Material coming from a Princeton research lab is full of holes—but that’s a good thing. Designed to mimic bone, wood and other natural materials, the porous objects are lighter than traditional products and can be strategically inserted into structures to provide higher stiffness in areas with high demand.

These porous structures, created by researchers at Princeton University and Georgia Tech, feature spinodal …
