Summary and Info
Written by a distinguished team of international authors, Biologically-Inspired Ttextiles explores the current state of the art in this research arena and examines how biomimetics are increasingly applied to new textile technologies. It discusses the principles, production and properties of biomimetics. Chapters include recombinant DNA technologies and their application for protein production, spinning of fibres from protein solutions and structure/function relationships in spider silk. Building on this foundation, the book then provides a review of the application of biomimetics to a range of textile applications, including the design of clothing and self cleaning textiles.
