Abstract null null Soft materials have enabled diverse modern technologies, but their practical deployment is usually limited by their mechanical failures. Fracture and fatigue of polymer networks are two important causes of mechanical failures of soft materials. A soft material fails by fracture when a monotonic load reaches its fracture toughness or fails by fatigue when a cyclic load reaches its fatigue threshold. The fracture toughness is usually much higher than the fatigue threshold for ra...

Summary Nanofibrous hydrogels are pervasive in animal and plant bodies and have been widely seen in engineering applications. Electrospinning is one of the most widely used methods for the fabrication of nanofibrous hydrogels. Whereas the biological nanofibrous hydrogels can maintain high strength and high toughness under multiple cycles of mechanical loads, such fatigue-resistant properties have not been achieved in electrospun nanofibrous hydrogels. Here, we report a bioinspired design of stro...
