... with the observed response of 3D-printed PLA lattices. Through a parametric study, we explore the role of key geometric and stiffness parameters and identify desirable regions of the design space. The non-linear responses demonstrated by this topology morphing lattice structure may offer designers a route...

... members was designed and fabricated, in which coiled nylon strings were installed as heat-induced contractive actuators replacing four of its tensile members to demonstrate the significant variability of the structural stiffness. Morphing under gravity due to the contraction of the actuators was observed...

... are not compatible with the typically low compliance of such airfoils. In recent years, research on airfoil morphing has generated interest in innovative ideas like the use of compliant systems, i.e. systems built to allow for large deformations without failure, in airfoil construction. Such systems can operate...
