Inverse Design of Inflatable Soft Membranes Through Machine Learning

Abstract "Across fields of science, researchers have increasingly focused on designing soft devices that can shape-morph to achieve functionality. However, identifying a rest shape that leads to a target 3D shape upon actuation is a non-trivial task that involves inverse design capabilities. In this study, a simple and efficient platform is presented to design pre-programmed 3D shapes starting... » read more
