please give me some examples of non-symmetric corugated structures

    I would really appreciate it if you would give me some examples of non-symmetric corrugated structures and their application , and also , in their case , is it possible to work on the micro scale also ? since they might not be periodic , as it looks like to me

    According to our paper, if x3 is not an odd function of X, it is a non-symmetric corrugation. Please check the second numerical example in our paper upload to this site. If it is non-symmetric, then we have extension-bending coupling. The non-symmetric is at the unit cell level, the entire structure is still periodic.

    Thank you so much , shall I ask if this non-symmetricity might have application interest as well ?

    It is up to engineers for innovation. For example, somebody might want to using corrugated for morphing purpose so that when it is subject to extension, it is also bend to increase the angle of attach. Such an interesting mechanism is not available with symmetric corrugation.
