Mechanical metamaterials: generative design and active behavior

Dr. Viacheslav Slesarenko Cluster of Excellence livMatS @ FIT – Freiburg Center for Interactive Materials and Bioinspired Technologies, University of Freiburg, Georges-Köhler-Allee 105, D-79110 Freiburg, Germany



Mechanical metamaterials continue to fascinate researchers with their unique properties and unconventional behavior. Simultaneously, while designing the metamaterials with the desired properties remains a pretty challenging task, it becomes more accessible thanks to the development of generative machine learning. In this talk, I will show a relatively simple strategy enabling the generation of mechanical and elastic metamaterials with the help of curvy beams. Moving from properties to functionalities, I will discuss metamaterials capable of altering their behavior due to active elements, magnetic interactions or topological changes arising during the deformation. Combining machine learning with non-linear mechanical phenomena might open new avenues in designing the next generation of active and reconfigurable metamaterials.
