Embedding auxetic properties in designing active-bending gridshells

Naboni, Roberto; Pezzi, Stefano Sartori ;

Full Article:

Advancements in computational tools are offering designers the possibility to change their relationship with materials. The exploration of auxetic metamaterials, specifically engineered to obtain properties beyond those found in nature, is the promising field examined in this paper. The aim is to define tools and methods in order to design auxetics, and use them to create efficient active-bending structures. By programming their geometry through several parameters, it is possible to finely control curvature and structural resistance. The paper describes an original investigation into the process of programming such structures through the use of combined computational tools.
