Abstract Shape memory is the property of a material to remember its original shape despite subsequent plastic deformation. The exposure to specific temperature profiles induces a shape memory effect on auxetic (negative Poisson’s ratio) foam specimens, returning them to their initial dimensions. This behaviour is a one-way effect, and it is a property of the polyurethane (PU) constituent of the foam. The foam specimens were transformed from conventional Poisson’s ratio to auxetic, returned to… CONTINUE READING
