Design and construction of nature-inspired and environmentally friendly machines
Projektowanie i budowa maszyn inspirowanych przyrodniczo i przyjaznych środowisku
Autor: Andrzej Sioma
This article is devoted to the presentation and discussion of a method for the design and engineering of solutions modelled on those observed in nature. Nature has become a source of inspiration in many areas of life, and in the last century, it has been in fact the driving force behind solutions in construction, design, medicine, and engineering. The paper presents a design that emerged from the observation of how organisms living in the aquatic environment travel. It discusses a selected organism and its selected functions which inspired the design of an innovative water propeller. It presents a conceptual design developed on that basis and a prototype. It discusses the solutions used in the prototype and it performance parameters.
