Dielectric-elastomer minimum-energy structures. Co-advised by Sigurd Wagner (ELE) and Sigrid Adriaenssens (CEE). Dielectric-elastomer minimum-energy structures are pre-stretched dielectric elastomer membranes adhered to thin flexible frames. The shape of the system can be varied by applying a voltage. In this project we want to explore the shapes that a system made of three cells can attain, when the voltages applied to the three cells are different.
