Book Description

In concept and execution, this book covers the field of EAP with careful attention to all its key aspects and full infrastructure, including the available materials, analytical models, processing techniques, and characterization methods. In this second edition the reader is brought current on promising advances in EAP that have occurred in electric EAP, electroactive polymer gels, ionomeric polymer-metal composites, carbon nanotube actuators, and more.

"'Electroactive Polymer (EAP) Actuators as Artificial Muscles' is a delightful book dealing with one of the hottest topics in biomedical engineering. Virtually every known method of generating displacement is introduced. This book is a must for anyone interested in actuators and sensors, including physicians and biomedical, chemical, electrical, and material engineers. It is thorough in every way...."
