An auxetic material exhibits exceptional features, which are different from a conventional material. That is, the auxetic material gets fatter when it is stretched, or becomes smaller when it is compressed, because it has a negative Poissons ratio. This report briefly reviews the latest advances in research work in auxetic materials, structural mechanisms, properties and application, particularly in aerospace and defense.
