Biomimetic Manufacturing Paper (PDF)

Next generation manufacturing innovation will be enabled by imitating biological systems in production environments. This white paper motivates new research in this biomimetic manufacturing arena through several examples. The expectation is that these illustrations will spawn follow-on discussions and a fundamental new direction in manufacturing research.

The Copper Cooler: Heat Sink for CPUs (PDF)

The University of Waterloo team investigated the redesign of a heat sink for cooling central processing units (CPUs). The new heat sink features an organic, branched fin design revolved around a circular base which is situated on top of the CPU. It will be part of an assembly with a fan mounted above the heat sink to facilitate forced convection, making it an active heat sink system.
