Some are also able to change both parameters at the same time. The inherent properties of these smart materials depend on the different principles behind their deformation. Depending on the distribution and arrangement of the sensitive components and a basic geometric shape, changes may take place in all dimensions to equal or unequal extents. g. the carrier material (matrix), and an evenly distributed active component. If on the other hand the passive and active components are unevenly distributed, for example if two differently sensitive components are arranged in layers one on top of the other, then the material or product will deform on one side only.
