Efficient network-matrix architecture for general flow transport inspired by natural pinnate leaves
Networks embedded in three dimensional matrices are beneficial to delivering physical flows to the matrices. Leaf architectures, pervasive natural network-matrix architectures, endow leaves with high transpiration rates and low water pressure drops, providing inspiration for efficient network-matrix architectures. In this study, the network-matrix model for general flow transport inspired by natural pinnate leaves is investigated analytically. The results indicate that the optimal networkdoi:10.1039/c4sm01413h pmid:25220587 fatcat:a2fpyufvs5fizd2euemnkx4wye
