Scientists take inspiration from `insect legs` to perk up aircraft designs

Washington DC, July 2 - To improve the safety of long tubular structures which are used in aircrafts and hospital equipments to reduce weight, researchers are taking ideas from insect legs.

Trinity College Dublin scientists looked at how different leg shapes of locusts, cockroaches, stick insects and bees bend and buckle when stress is applied to them.

Professor David Taylor said that thin-walled tubes were prone to failure by buckling and it was also difficult to predict the loading conditions which caused buckling, especially for tubes of non-standard cross section.

For the research the researchers chose insects with different leg shape and lifestyles.
