About this book

Biomimetics in Materials Science provides a comprehensive theoretical and practical review of biomimetic materials with self-healing, self-lubricating and self-cleaning properties. These three topics are closely related and constitute rapidly developing areas of study. The field of self-healing materials requires a new conceptual understanding of this biomimetic technology, which is in contrast to traditional  engineering processes such as wear and fatigue.  Biomimetics in Materials Science is the first monograph to be devoted to these materials. A new theoretical framework for these processes is presented based on the concept of multi-scale structure of entropy and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, together with a detailed review of the available technology. The latter includes experimental, modeling, and simulation results obtained on self-healing/lubricating/cleaning materials since their emergence in the past decade.

About the authors

Dr. Michael Nosonovsky is an Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee (UWM). He is a co-author of one monograph, ten book chapters, and more than 50 research articles. For his work on the Lotus effect and biomimetic surfaces, he was honored with the 2008 Burt L. Newkirk Award by ASME.

Dr. Pradeep K. Rohatgi is Wisconsin Distinguished Professor and Director of the UWM Center for Composites. He is a pioneer in the field of composite materials, particularly metal matrix composites. Rohatgi has coauthored and edited eleven books and over four hundred scientific papers, and holds 20 U.S. patents. In 2006, he was honored with the "Rohatgi Honorary Symposium" on Solidification Processing of Metal Matrix Composites by The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society.
