By Alberto Carpinteri, Yiu-Wing Mai, Robert O. Ritchie

Biological fabrics are bottom-up designed structures shaped from billions of years of average evolution. within the lengthy process Darwinian festival for survival, nature has developed a major number of hierarchical and multifunctional structures from nucleic acids, proteins, cells, tissues, organs, organisms, animal groups to ecological s- tems. Multilevel hierarchy a rule of nature. The complexities of biology provide a chance to review the fundamental ideas of hierarchical and multifunctional s- tems layout, a subject matter of strength curiosity not just to biomedical and lifestyles sciences, but additionally to nanosciences and nanotechnology. Systematic stories of ways hierarchical constructions in biology are on the topic of their features and houses may end up in greater knowing of the consequences of getting older, illnesses and medication on tissues and organs, and will aid constructing a scienti?c foundation for tissue engineering to enhance the normal of residing. while, such reports can also supply suggestions at the dev- opment of novel nanostructured hierarchical fabrics through a bottom-up technique, i. e. through tailor-designing fabrics from atomic scale and up. at the moment we slightly have any theoretical foundation on the right way to layout a hierarchical fabric to accomplish a component- ular set of macroscopic houses. the hot attempt aiming to appreciate the re- tionships among hierarchical buildings in biology and their mechanical in addition to different services and houses could provide difficult and profitable possibilities for mechanics within the twenty first century.

Historical explanation and some remarks for future have been described on The International Congress on Fracture (abbreviated as ICF), including the International Journal and International Cooperative Research as relevance.

Ritchie K. T. Yokobori, Jr. Alberto Carpinteri more and more significantly in near future. Message from Sir Alan Cottrell says that the conference is scientific challenge for the future, and the author was very much encouraged. The concept of complexity system science is closely related to or essentially or virtually similar to Bio-informatics. In this way, the author hope the research towards such direction will be prevailing in ICF at the 21 century. 2.
