Project: Development of Mechanical Programmable Materials

Supervisor: Prof. Dr. Chris Eberl

Programmable materials demonstrate a behavior that can be described by logical elements. This behavior is achieved through a manipulation of the material’s micro- and mesostructure.
It is possible to both implement multiple macroscopic properties into a material (e.g. a positive and negative Poisson’s ratio) and to switch between the different states. In my research, I develop and numerically describe such materials.
