Smart morphing structures with full shape control

Smart morphing structures with full shape control

An innovative smart morphing technology that consists of a smart core fabricated from many layers of piezoceramic material, forming a honeycomb structure. Actuations of the walls, which can be performed independently for each cell, will ultimately morph the core shape.

SmartFlap: 9% lower fuel costs for trucks from enhanced drag reduction

SmartFlap: 9% lower fuel costs for trucks from enhanced drag reduction

The SmartFlap technology provides possibly the best yet solution to reducing drag caused by the turbulent wake at the back of a truck. It uses actively controlled flaps of similar size those of currently available systems, which operate at a slow speed over a narrow range of movement, delivering fuel savings of up to 9%. The demonstrated drag reduction and potentially low cost of the system make it a cost effective investment for truck operators. Also, the size of the flaps and ease of installation ensure that they will be robust and unobstrusive for loading operations as well as on the road.
