Bio-inspired design of lightweight metal structure based on microstructure of fully ripe Loofah
It is well known that a naturally matured loofah has some distinct inherent properties including extremely low density and high absorbability, due to its unique fibrous microstructure and macro-cellular architecture including the spatial configuration of voids and solids. In this paper, we focus on patents and literature related to the development of a three-dimensional (3D) lightweight metallic structure by means of a design bio-inspired by the cellular architecture of a fully ripe loofah.
