SELF – ADAPTIVE MEMBRANE _ A passive kinetic system

Self-adaptive Membrane1

The Self-Adaptive membrane is as totally passive and kinetic system that allows the expansion on a geometry that automatically responds to the natural increase of heat of the environment. Many systems available in the market use motors and sensors to conserve energy expended on cooling and heating, however these systems require electricity to operate. Our research is based on the use a thermo responsive smart material: Shape Memory Alloy and the exploit of its full capacities to achieve a passive performance.
