Abstract

The unconventional way that auxetic materials behave can result in advantageous mechanical properties, which could be made use of in applications such as protective equipment and clothing in sport. Much of the work to date demonstrates advantageous properties of auxetic materials well, but their application in sport is underdeveloped. This review paper demonstrates how modelling has helped develop auxetics research, highlighting how further work in this area could contribute to improved implementation of auxetics within sport. Additive manufacturing as a production technology for auxetic structures is also considered and discussed. Future work could look at creating a systematic finite element modelling process to design, optimise and apply auxetic structures for use in sports protective equipment.
