2020 arXiv   pre-print
This postdoctoral thesis starts by reviewing the historic development of airplane structures and high lift devices from an engineering point of view. However, the main purpose of this document is the development of a novel concept for shape changing, gapless high lift devices that is inspired by the nastic movement of plants. A particular focus is put on the efficient simulation and optimization of compliant pressure actuated cellular structures.
