The aim of this project was to get a better understanding of the shape memory behaviour of 3D-printed polymers, and the different parameters which affect this, with the ultimate goal to apply shape memory in product design. This project started with a literature study on shape memory polymers and 3D-printing. The material properties, different...

In recent developments in the field of multi-material additive manufacturing, differences in material properties are exploited to create printed shape memory structures, which are referred to as 4D-printed structures. New printing techniques allow for the introduction of prestresses in the specimen during manufacturing. This research focuses on...

The main objective of the current study is the investigation of the behavior of structural joints consisting of Shape Memory Polymers. Taking into account the large environmental impact caused by the massive production of structural materials, the change of the current structural design philosophy is becoming essential. Conventional structural...
