Morphing aircraft: the need for a new design philosophy
This paper proposes a novel framework for classification of morphing technology based on its functionality, operation, and the structural layout. In addition, it highlights the limitations of the conventional design approach to exploit the benefits of the technology using representative examples and results.

Abstract

This paper proposes a novel framework for classification of morphing technology based on its functionality, operation, and the structural layout. In addition, it highlights the limitations of the conventional design approach to exploit the benefits of the technology using representative examples and results.
