Design and Analysis of Optimal Braided Composite Lattice Structures
This work applies to structural optimization within geometric constraints of braided truss structures. Prototypes of the newly developed open-structures have proven useful for their high specific stiffness and rapid ...
Enabling Shape Memory Alloys as Actuators for Robotics
Does any existing technology provide a viable actuator for the high degree-of-freedom robots that will soon be ubiquitous in society? If a technology exists that is in any way superior to the electric motor for robotics – ...
