Data from: Damage shielding mechanisms in hierarchical composites in nature with potentials in design of tougher structural materials

Otte Marthin & Kristofer Gamstedt
Load-carrying materials in nature, such as wood and bone, consist of relatively simple building blocks assembled into a hierarchical structure, ranging from the molecular scale up to the macroscopic level. This results in composites with a combination of high strength and high toughness, showing very large fracture surfaces indicating energy dissipation by cracking on multiple length scales. Manmade composites instead consists typically of fibres embedded in a uniform matrix, and frequently shows brittle failure through...
