Book Description

The topic of architectured materials is explored in detail in the book “Architectured Materials in Nature and Engineering: Archimats,” which is available in PDF format. These are hybrid materials in which the ingredients, which can be very distinct to one another, are joined in a specific geometry and topology to create qualities that are in opposition to one another. The hybridization that is discussed in the e-book takes place on a variety of scales, ranging from the microscopic (that is, on the sub-centimeter level) to the molecular. This monograph is a collection of programming chapters that discuss topics such as defining archimats and summarizing the results produced by employing the geometry-inspired materials design.

The field of architecturally or geometrically inspired materials has reached a certain level of maturity and visibility, making it possible for a thorough presentation to be made in the form of a book. It is written by a collective of authors who are currently engaged in research on a variety of issues pertaining to architecturally designed materials. The e-book is broken up into 14 chapters, each of which offers a definition and explanation of a different archetype of architectured material. These chapters also discuss the many methods that may be used to optimize, create, and manufacture these architectured materials. It examines a wide variety of potential uses for archimats, ranging from those that are found in nature to those that have been engineered, and it covers a broad spectrum of archimats. Reading this book will provide readers in the materials science community and beyond with material that is both scientifically profound and amusing all at the same time.
