Pagination or Media Count:
The objective of this project was to advance computational methods for solving inverse problems related to smart morphable structures that can evaluate their current environment and then adapt accordingly to optimize performance with minimal energy expense. An efficient and accurate computational framework was established for the optimal design of morphing structures comprised of active smart materials through locally controllable actuation and activation.
