Fabrizio Scarpa : "Cellular structures for morphing wings and reflectors"

In recent years the aerospace R&D community has witnessed a significant surge in research activities connected to morphing aerospace structures. This seminar describes the results from modelling and testing prototypes of wingboxes and satellite antenna reflectors made with cellular configurations. The cellular structures used (honeycombs, truss-cores, lattices) show negative and zero Poisson’s ratio behaviours, and are made from polimeric, shape memory alloy and embedded piezoelectr
