B Bionic Structure

A bionic structure is a structure with the appearance close to nature.

Bionic means a transfer from nature to technology. Therefore, the structures with the appearance close to animals or plants can be regarded as bionic.

For example, fillets between crossing members act like branches of a tree.

The production expenditure can be higher, but the advantages can be found in the utilization of the material. In the example of fillets, singularities can be minimized in the intersection points.
