From the wrinkling of skin on a forehead to the fractal patterns observed at the edge of a tear on a conventional bin bag, structures in nature all share an inherent ability to morph. Such shape-morphing structures are at the core of future applications in aeronautics, minimally invasive surgery, tissue engineering and smart materials. This talk will explore the behaviour observed in the analytical study of a slender surface with a twisted geometry coupled with differential stresses. It will also seek to complement this by considering manufacturing techniques that can be used for the realisation of these novel structures.
