Biomimetic scales are known to substantially alter the curvature dependent properties of mechanical materials engendering complex nonlinearities that can manifest even in small deformations due to scales interaction. Such scales are ubiquitous in nature and known to endow the organism with several mechanical and multifunctional advantages. Since then, tremendous interest has been gathering in mimicking these structures in materials to obtain high performance including stiffness gains and tunable elasticity. Although experimentally straightforward to demonstrate, the fundamental source of these behavior are difficult to model beyond simple geometries due the complications arising from scales interactions. The dynamic behavior of such biomimetic ...
