Designing Architectured Materials: Evolution vs. Intelligent Design
01 Nov 2016 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Pablo Daniel Zavattieri
There is a strong demand for new paradigms of design and development of advanced high-performance structural materials with high strength and durability that are low-cost and renewable with novel combinations of properties. Yet, most of these applications require high-performance materials that are not only stiff and strong for structural purposes, but also they need to be tough and capable of absorbing energy to avoid catastrophic failure under extreme events. Unfortunately, most engineering materials have an inverse relation between these desired properties. ...

Bio-Inspired Materials: Lessons Learned from Nature
17 Sep 2015 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Pablo Daniel Zavattieri
Pablo Zavattieri received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nuclear engineering from the Balseiro Institute, Argentina, and his PhD from the School of Aeronautics and Astronautics at Purdue University. Prior to joining Purdue, he was a senior/staff researcher at the General Motors Research and Development Center. His research interests are in the area of computational solid mechanics applied to the multi-scale analysis and design of advanced and novel materials (metals, composite materials, hierarchical, multifunctional, micro-, nano- and biomimetic composite materials), interfaces and complex structures.
