Morphing wings, similar to Natural flyers, have a lot of potential for enhancing overall aircraft performance. The design and development of morphing wings is now a focus of research because they provide future aircraft with greater efficiency and flexibility. Finding morphing wing structural layouts that allow for aerodynamically optimal shape changes without first specifying the goal shape is a difficult task. In this review, the most well-known examples of morphing principles with various wing models are explored. Methods and tools often utilized for the design and analysis of these Concepts are described, including structural and aerodynamic evaluations, as well as control and optimization elements. Throughout the evaluation process, it became obvious that general adoption of morphing Concepts for routine use on aerial aircraft is still uncommon, and some of the reasons for this are examined. Finally, future concepts that are promising are selected.
