This ebook; Architectured Materials in Nature and Engineering: Archimats (PDF) deals with a group of architectured materials. These are hybrid materials in which the constituents (even strongly dissimilar ones) are combined in a given geometry and topology to provide otherwise conflicting properties. The hybridization presented in the ebook occurs at various levels – from the molecular to the macroscopic (say; sub-centimeter) ones. This monograph represents a collection of programmatic chapters; defining archimats and summarizing the results obtained by using the geometry-inspired materials design.

The area of architectured or geometry-inspired materials has reached a certain level of maturity and visibility for a comprehensive presentation in book form. It is written by a group of authors who are active researchers working on various aspects of architectured materials. Through its 14 chapters; the ebook provides definitions and descriptions of the archetypes of architectured materials and addresses the various techniques in which they can be optimized; designed; and manufactured. It covers a broad realm of archimats; from the ones occurring in nature to those that have been engineered; and discusses a range of their possible applications. The book provides inspiring and scientifically profound; yet entertaining; reading for the materials science community and beyond.
