A composite structure consisting of a Shape Memory Polymer (SMP) matrix and three Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) strips was constructed. The SMA strips act as actuators which create forward and backward angle bends of 90 degrees of the composite structure. The function of the polymer matrix was to give the structure enough stiffness. During the...

Self-healing of epoxy matrix could prove essential in increasing the reliability and service life of fiber-reinforced polymers. The principle of encapsulated liquid healing agents dispersed in the matrix has been demonstrated successfully using different chemistries and different testing setups. In addition, progress has been made in the field...

This research focusses on the realization of adaptive architecture with the use of advanced material technology. Current material research has shown significant advances with the development of “smart” materials. Smart materials are “capable of automatically and inherently sensing or detecting changes in their environment and responding to those...
