Nature attains impressive material properties with a comparatively simple palette of ingredients, assembled at low temperatures. The structures and growth processes of natural systems, however, are often too complex to mimic, making extraction of design principles difficult. Our Human Frontier Science Program project investigates the skeletons of sharks and rays, composites with unique material properties and a tiled structure particularly amenable to modeling.
