Biomimetics in fabrics Science presents a finished theoretical and useful assessment of biomimetic fabrics with self-healing, self-lubricating and self-cleaning houses. those 3 themes are heavily similar and represent swiftly constructing components of research. the sphere of self-healing fabrics calls for a brand new conceptual knowing of this biomimetic know-how, that is not like conventional engineering tactics equivalent to put on and fatigue. Biomimetics in fabrics Science is the 1st monograph to be dedicated to those fabrics. a brand new theoretical framework for those tactics is gifted in keeping with the concept that of multi-scale constitution of entropy and non-equilibrium thermodynamics, including an in depth evaluation of the to be had know-how. The latter comprises experimental, modeling, and simulation effects got on self-healing/lubricating/cleaning fabrics for the reason that their emergence long ago decade.
