Few engineering materials are limited by their strength; rather they are limited by their fracture toughness. The resistance to fracture of a given material is intimately related to its microstructure. Perfect examples of this are biological materials that offer design strategies for the development of new composites that will open new possibilities in many structural applications demanding combinations of both strength and toughness.
