Smart Textile Shading

Compliant Shading Enclosure The shading system utilizes a bi-metal element that is bonded to high expansion and low expansion alloys. A slight change in temperature makes the alloys produce an opposing force, causing the element to deform and rotate.  The system requires no maintenance or user input once installed, and by adjusting the parameters of the alloys, the mechanism can suit a variety of climates.  A fascinating idea- imagine if the same principle could be applied within the textile at the nano scale!
