Purdue Develops new Intelligent Architected Materials

Researchers in Purdue University’s (West Lafayette, Ind., U.S.) Civil Engineering department have developed patent-pending intelligent architected materials that can dissipate energy caused by bending, compression, torque and tensile stresses, thereby avoiding permanent plastic deformation or damage. These materials may also exhibit shape memory properties that enable them to have actuation capacity. Avoiding damage makes the material reusable and improves human safety and structure durability in products across several industrial sectors. …
