I would like to get some opinions on how to simulate something in gh that I have been experimenting within physical models. In the attached photos you can see some cork-bioplastic tiles. Initially, cork works as 2d frame to contain bioplastic while it dehydrates. But as bioplastic dehydrates, it shrinks and as a result, deforms the cork frame 3d. From physical experiments, I know that there are so many other parameters apart from frame(humidity, hanging orientation, temperature, bioplastic thickness and formula, etc.) that affect the exact form how it deforms but would like to have an easy way to test different frame variations even if it is only somewhat accurate.
I stumbled upon some papers and blogs that to me seem relevanthttps://vimeo.com/user15741966, https://www.researchgate.net/publication/326552014_Tailoring_Self-Formation_fabrication_and_simulation_of_membrane-actuated_stiffness_gradient_composites.
However, not sure where to start. Maybe someone already had a similar problem?
