|Abstract:||Auxetics are materials that exhibit a negative Poisson's ratio i.e. they expand when pulled apart. This makes auxetic materials are more resistant to fracture. Also auxetic materials do not dent easily-when compressed, the material compresses towards the point of impact and becomes much denser.|
