    Abstract The morphing skin has been a main obstacle in the real-world implementation of morphing aircrafts. This paper presents a morphing skin made of the elastomer reinforced by the honeycomb structure. A matrix made from elastomer provides possibilities to configure the morphing skin and the honeycomb structure with smaller in-plane modulus and larger out-of-plane modulus is thought to be suitable to reinforce the elastomer. The polyurethane elastomer is selected and synthesized by the casting method with the prepolymer approach, after which a tensile test is conducted to get its stress-strain relationship. To decrease the skin depth and diminish the local deformation… More >
