Background : Imitation of nature to tackle failure due to acks in composite cracks in composite. Crack causes failures in engineering aterials before their yield/ultimate strength materials before their yield/ultimate strength is reached. Cracks are present in bones as in engineering materials. Crack resistant osteonal bones attracts the crack to particular area in bones and then repair it.

Objective: To investigate the effect of the osteon properties and size variation on crack stability d k ti and crack propagation. Whether cracks can be attracted to osteons r arrestment or not for arrestment or not. Developing methodology to optimally designing the crack resistant engineering material.
