Synthetic tooth enamel may lead to more resilient structures
from University of Michigan via ScienceDaily
Unavoidable vibrations, such as those on airplanes, cause rigid structures to age and crack, but researchers at the University of Michigan may have an answer for that — design them more like tooth enamel, which could lead to more resilient flight computers, for instance. Most materials that effectively absorb vibration are soft, so they don't make good structural components such as beams, chassis or motherboards.
