Advantages of architectured harmonic structure in structural performance


<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title> <jats:p>The concept of heterogenous materials with architectured harmonic structure (HS) has emerged recently with the aim of enhancing the structural performance of metals. This work presents critical microstructure characteristics contributing to the superior structural performance of harmonic-structured materials using as an example of commercially-pure nickel. Optical and scanning electron microscopy, along with nano-indentation and tensile testing, as well as digital image correlation analysis, were used for this purpose. A brief overview of the structural performance of several representative systems with HS is provided and interesting directions for future studies are discussed.</jats:p>
