Morphing surfaces, when correctly implemented, have immense potential to increase the efficiency of systems that are in direct contact with the fluidic flow. Taking inspiration from birds, the idea of morphing expresses how instead of having different moving parts, a single albeit complex, shape-shifting, and twisting surface can prove to be more efficient. This paper can be largely divided into two parts. The former gives a brief overview of the classifications in the field and methodologies of morphing surfaces, while the latter part deals more with aspects of their implementation and designing an optimal control structure. The problems and solutions associated with their implementation are presented along with prospects. This research did not receive any specific grant from funding agencies in the public, commercial, or not-for-profit sectors
