Introduction to 4D Textiles

Presented by
Chris Pastore, PhD, Professor of Transdisciplinary Studies and Engineering, Kanbar College of Design, Engineering and Commerce, Thomas Jefferson University

4D Textiles are structures that respond to environment forces.  Typically these are produced by combining 3D printing with textile materials.  The behavior is achieved by storing strain energy in the textile that is resisted by the printed material.  When the printed material changes properties (from heat, electrical energy, chemical response, etc.), the shape of the system changes.
