Programmable materials based on thermoplastic polyurethane and polystyrene
Poster presented at International Conference on Programmable Materials, ProgMatCon 2022, Hybrid Event, July 12-14, 2022
The production of Programmable Materials at a large scale is a challenge due to their hierarchical cell based inner structure. Implementation of polymer based programmable materials which can be produced in a large scale. The used basic materials for the unit cells are thermoplastic polyurethanes (TPU), which are soft and can sustain many load cycles and polystyrene (PS), which is stiff and can bear high loads.
