Aerospace and automotive sectors are witnessing a major increase in innovative structures for light-weighting and higher performance requirements in the recent times. Polymeric foams are used traditionally for achieving a lower density and hence a lower overall vehicular weight for higher fuel efficiency. With innovations in vehicular technologies, concomitant advancements in materials and manufacturing technologies are warranted. To that end, this project will develop self healing strategies with shape memory polymer foams for automotive and aerospace structures. Utilising macromolecular chemistry and materials engineering principles, this project will develop self deploying structures with self healing capabilities.
