Slender structures can exhibit large shape-changes without large material deformations. In this regime, geometrical non-linearities play a crucial role and can be exploited to conceive reconfigurable structures for shape-control applications. In this talk, I will discuss the modelling of a class of shells with almost uniform curvature. I will show how to effectively control their shape by prescribing target inelastic curvatures associated to plastic deformations and embedded active materials.

I will present a specific application consisting of a shell with a zero-stiffness deformation mode obtained by plastically deforming an initially flat copper disk, so as to induce large isotropic and almost uniform inelastic curvatures. The shell is theoretically neutrally stable, owning a continuous manifold of stable cylindrical shapes corresponding to the rotation of the axis of maximal curvature. Small imperfections render the actual structure bistable, giving preferred orientations. A three-parameter piezoelectric actuation allows us to add a small perturbation to the plastic inelastic curvature and to control the direction of maximal curvature. This actuation law is designed through a minimal fully non-linear inextensible uniform-curvature shell model [1, 2]. I will discuss how the co-existence of stiff and floppy modes leads to unexploited dynamical features, including chaotic behaviour with a surprisingly regular regimes with a continuous precession of the curvature axis at a constant speed [5].
