Recent Publication: Morphing structures using soft polymers for active deployment

A paper, co-authored by Dr. Richard Trask has been published in the Smart Materials and Structures journal, titled “Morphing structures using soft polymers for active deployment”. This research takes inspiration from morphing strategies observed in nature, origami design and stiffness tailoring principles in engineering, to develop a thin walled, low cost, bistable cell geometry capable of reversibly unfolding from a flat configuration to a highly textured configuration.
