Bio Inspired Design - Lecture 1. Introduction

  1. 1. Bio-Inspired DesignWb2436-05 (3 EC) Paul Breedveld Just Herder Tetsuo Tomiyama Martijn Wisse Dimitra Dodou Faculty Mechanical, Maritime, and Materials Engineering Department BioMechanical EngineeringVermelding onderdeel organisatie
  2. 2. Some organisms are very handy… http://monsterfinance.wordpress.com/2008/08/18/16/ • Biology knows very flexible solutions where engineers tend to come up with “grossly overweight and highly inept animals” 1 1) EI Rivin, Mechanical Design of Robots, McGraw-Hill, 1988 January 31, 2011 2© 2006 Just L. Herder©2011 Paul Breedveld
  3. 3. General Objective Goal • Overview of non-conventional mechanical approaches in biology. • More creativity in mechanical design. • Better (simpler, smaller, more robust, etc) technical solutions. Focus • Concentrate on physical part (structure, mechanisms) of organisms, in contrast with course Wb5435-05 “Machine Intelligence” that focuses on psychological part (brains, behaviour) of organisms. January 31, 2011 3© 2006 Just L. Herder©2011 Paul Breedveld
  4. 4. Learing Objectives After completion of this course students will be able to: 1 Describe methods for creative design. 2 Identify mechanical working principles and phenomena of biological creatures: • Explain their construction, motion, and/or processing. • Formalize the essence of these mechanisms in models. • Derive non-conventional principles from these models. 3 Implement these principles in innovative mechanical devices: • Summarize transition from the biological to mechanical. • Present their design in drawings or in working models.

  5. 5. Bio-Inspired Design vs Biomimetics Biomimetics = Imitating Nature ReplieeQ2, Osaka University January 31, 2011 5© 2006 Just L. Herder©2011 Paul Breedveld
  6. 6. Bio-Inspired Design vs Biomimetics Biomimetics = Imitating Nature January 31, 2011 6© 2006 Just L. Herder©2011 Paul Breedveld
  7. 7. Bio-Inspired Design vs Biomimetics Biomimetics = Imitating Nature Bio-Inspired Design = • Not imitating nature, but using nature as source of inspiration (as well as man-made technical devices). • Nature is not perfect, mankind either. • But nature uses different, sometimes very ingenious approaches that can make us more creative in finding better solutions.

  8. 8. Main Topics I Bioconstruction (how are creatures constructed, how do they deal with energy) • Biostructure • Bioenergy (muscle configurations & biological springs) • Bioreproduction & regeneration • Biomaintenance & repair II Biomotion (how do creatures move) • Bioclamping (hands & other clamping methods) • Biopropulsion (macroscale & microscale) III Bioprocessing (how do creatures behave & coordinate) • Biobehaviours & group intelligence January 31, 2011 8© 2006 Just L.
