Bioinspired design from the sea

Date

Lecturers

Prof. Adam Summers, University of Washington, and Friday Harbor Labs

Abstract

The marine environment is salty, fouling, and turbulent - an interesting venue for biologically inspired design. Solutions that work in the sea face the same challenges as implants in the human body. I will talk about filtering, adhesion, and armor designs inspired by marine systems.
