Paper Abstract

Natural process design, is a biological mimicking system in which natural integrated systems are studied and then implemented for human use. Design with natural process is a drawing from the "experience" of evolution. To make an ocean port relies on using the same chemicals which undergo different forces from nature and use various natural processes such as occur in corrals. It integrates many separate functions such as self formation, sensing, repair, self recycling and improving the environment.
