Methods for Supporting Bioinspired Design
Volume 2: Biomedical and Biotechnology Engineering; Nanoengineering for Medicine and Biology
Bioinspired design, the use of nature to inspire solutions to engineering problems, is a powerful approach for innovation but is generally practiced on an ad hoc basis. Only recently, however, have researchers sought to develop formal tools and principles to effectively tap the wealth of design solutions found within nature. Research efforts in applying design tools such as the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving (TRIZ), functional modeling, and keyword searches to bioinspired design aredoi:10.1115/imece2011-63247 fatcat:j7mse627afbwnbjzxksomkqtoe
