Introduction to biomimetics engineering and component design
Biomimetics is based on the belief that nature, at least at times, is a good engineer. Biomimesis is the scientific method of learning new principles and processes based on systematic study, observation and experimentation with live animals and organisms.1. Introduction. Within the human body, there is a vast array of uniquely arranged biologic structures. The elegance of these geometries is only matched by their equally varied functional sophistication. The harmony at which all components operate is truly aweinspiring and from an engineering perspective, daunting to replicate. introduction to biomimetics engineering and component design

Biomimetics was defined by the Biomimetics Network for Industrial Sustainability (BioNIS) as design inspired by nature an enabling discipline which looks towards nature for ideas that may be adapted and adopted for solving problems. Biomimetics or biomimicry is the imitation of the models, systems, and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems. The terms biomimetics and biomimicry derive from Ancient Greek: (bios), life, and (), imitation, from (mmeisthai), to imitate, from (mimos), actor. A closely related field is bionics.introduction to biomimetics engineering and component design Students are introduced to the concepts of biomimicry and sustainable design. As students focus on applying the ecological principles of the previous lessons to the future design of our humancentered world, they also learn that often our practices are incapable of replicating the precision in which nature completes certain functions, as evidenced by our dependence on bees as pollinators of
