Biomimicry: Engineering's Sincerest Form of Flattery

External News Details

Dr. Bert Bras, professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, explains why he prefers to call biomimicry "biologically inspired design," in the November 2012 ASME eNews. "Biomimicry implies copying and simply copying is not necessarily the best or smartest way to do things," he says. "Inspiration allows the engineer to take the best from nature and put it in a new (engineering) context."
