Technology of the Day

Passive Adaptive Structures

Changing Aerodynamics

Passive, adaptive structures are designed to provide a tailored, nonlinear, passive response to changing aerodynamic conditions. The tailored response permits a structure to maintain a baseline shape during typical operations but to adapt its shape under changing load conditions. Depending on the application, this technology offers the potential to increase lifecycle maintainability of the system, reduce structural weight, increase overall system performance, and reduce damage and structural fatigue resulting from undesirable loading conditions.
