Paper Abstract

The main steps in transferring ideas from a biological context to an engneering one are: 8) recognizing the required function within the engineering context; 9) isolating a biological equivalent; 10) transferring the biological function to the engineering context. To illustrate this, there are many ways of joining two pieces of material together which can be displayed on Cartesian coordinates wiht the non-parametric variables of strength of interaction and permanence.
