Marine Animals Inspire New Approaches to Structural Topology Optimization

PhD Student Emily Sanders, left, and Professor Glaucio Paulino, right, hold red 3-D printed models as they stand on a campus sidewalk surrounded by greenery.

A mollusk and shrimp are two unlikely marine animals that are playing a very important role in engineering. The bodies of both animals illustrate how natural features, like the structures of their bones and shells, can be borrowed to enhance the performance of engineered structures and materials, like bridges and airplanes.
