3D imaging of plants gives the inspiration to build lighter and stronger material Car -

A team of researchers from the Group biomechanical plant at the University of Fribourg has made a study of natural organisms to see how they can survive in an environment full of stress and tension. Natural organisms mentioned are plants and trees in the forests and the stress and fatigue condition that is through conditions such as too much rain or too much sun or even moisture.

This study is made using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that allows researchers to take a look at the inner workings of the flora that will eventually help provide new ideas on the best how to make the best material for use in the manufacture of car body parts, aircraft and sports equipment in the future. The key is how to make light but enough to withstand any stress imposed on them, for example, how to be part of the body of the lighter car so that the car can go faster, but strong at the same time to be able strong travel on the road under unpredictable weather.

Linnea Hesse, a researcher working in the team, said they wanted to assess the carrying capacity of vascular tissues and for the first time, they could see the load deformations induced by the non-invasive in a living plant. She added, explaining that the focus was on optimizing the technical ramifications and thus the development of products in the car, plane, windmill and construction of the sports equipment as they take advantage of reduced weight and a high load capacity.

Although there are still a lot of things that must be done, however, this can be considered as the first step towards producing better material.
