Paper Abstract

NITINOL alloy wire actuation system is discussed in this paper. This actuator is an active component used to achieve a camber change in a NACA 0012 airfoil. The camber changes are used to provide a collective control for a two bladed model helicopter. This means the collective control is moved to the individual blades. A two actuator control system has been designed using H(infinity ) control techniques.
