Design and Fabrication of Soft Matter Structures with Functional Stiffness Gradients

Functionally graded objects take advantage of heterogeneous material properties to fulfil different design requirements as a single entity. A combinatory approach of material engineering and liquid additive manufacturing is implemented in this project to create functional stiffness graded objects with continuous mechanical property gradients. These property gradients are then utilized for the fabrication of objects with programmable behaviour in response to applied forces.
