title Modelling, Simulation and Verification of Pneumatically Actuated Auxetic Systems

summary This paper presents the development of an SLS 3D printed auxetic structure actuated to a predefined form by an embedded pneumatic network through an iterative process of feedback between digital simulation and physical testing. This feedback process is critical to the development of a more accurate predictive model, and to compose the geometry of the suggested structure. An approach based on the emergence of the final structure from the convergence of the behaviour of sub-structures and a methodology based on the analysis and synthesis of the simplest sub-system is the core of this research. The results indicate a promising simulation environment and a novel methodology for the design and fabrication of auxetic structures with embedded pneumatic actuation. This exploratory research suggests a fertile space for investigation within the field of adaptive architecture and soft kinetic design.
