Continuum Model for Pressure Actuated Cellular Structures
TLDR
An efficient optimization algorithm that fully couples both sets of variables of the continuum and numerical model and the performance of the proposed approach is demonstrated with the help of an examples.
Pressure-actuated cellular structures
TLDR
A novel concept for morphing structures that is inspired by the nastic movement of plants is proposed, to connect prismatic cells with tailored pentagonal and/or hexagonal cross sections such that the resulting cellular structure morphs into given target shapes for certain cell pressures.
Transient Dynamic System Behavior of Pressure Actuated Cellular Structures in a Morphing Wing

A modular approach to adaptive structures
TLDR
An algorithm that breaks down any continuous target shapes into a small number of standardized modules is presented and it is shown how cytoskeletons within each cell enhance the properties of adaptive modules.
Pressurized honeycombs as soft-actuators: a theoretical study
TLDR
A micromechanical model based on the Born model for crystal elasticity is developed to find an explicit relation between honeycomb geometry, swelling eigenstrains and elastic properties and it is shown that the material architecture controls and guides the otherwise unspecific isotropic expansion of the fluid.
