Smart Structures via 4D printing of Hydrogel Materials

Nahin Islam Shiblee

Hydrogel actuators with soft-robotic capabilities and biomimetic advanced materials with simple and programmable fabrication processes are still in scarce. We describe a novel method for constructing a shape-memory-hydrogel-based bilayer system via 3D printing, resulting in a soft actuator that responds to methodical application of swelling and heat. Additionally,
