‘Morphing mechanics’ is the natural confluence of art, science, engineering and philosophy. It has been a continuous endeavour to mimic the natural flyers by human civilization in the last hundred years. We have progressed fast, right from the Wright brothers flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903 to hypersonic flights in the 21st century.
Yet, there is so much more to come. One of the area is ‘morphing mechanics ’, which brings together the aerodynamics, structures and control aspects as a single problem.
