Book Excerpt : This book celebrates structural compliance in nature and human technology. Examples of compliant structures in nature abound, from the walls of the smallest cell, to the wings of the condor, to the tail of the grey whale. The subject of compliant structures in nature and engineering is timely and important, albeit quite broad and challenging. A concise summary of the important features of these interesting structures, this volume demonstrates, wherever possible, a mapping between naturally compliant structures and the promise and opportunity commensurate in human engineering.
