    Abstract: The past two decades have witnessed a growing interest among aerospace researchers and designers in aircraft morphing technology. A single aircraft with morphing wings can perform near optimum at different flight regimes by changing the geometry of its wings. With the advancements achieved in this field, a need for a reliable morphing skin is emerg... Show More
