Material transitions in moving systems in nature in technology
If a materials system consisting of several material layers with different mechanical properties is deformed, stresses arise at the material interfaces, which may cause delamination of the layers. Structural and mechanical analyses of motile biological systems will be used to elaborate principles for improving the longevity of multilayer technical structures and to investigate their applicability.
