Thermoauxetic Behavior of Composite Structures
AbstractThis paper presents a study of new two-dimensional composite structures with respect to their thermomechanical properties. The investigated structures are based on very well-known auxetic geometries—i.e., the anti-tetrachiral and re-entrant honeycomb—modified by additional linking elements, material which is highly sensitive to changes of temperature. The study shows that temperature can be used as a control parameter to tune the value of the effective Poisson’s ratio, which allows, in turn, changing its value from positive to negative, according to the temperature applied. The study shows that such thermoauxetic behavior applies both to composites with voids and those completely filled with material. View Full-Text
