Paper Abstract

Consider a stacked actuator of nominal (free-stroke) displacement UISA, and internal stiffness k,. During static operation, the total induced energy, EISA, gets divided between the internal and external subsystems: part of it, Ee, is transmitted to the external application, while the rest, E, remains stored in the internal compressibility of the stack. The value of EISA, and its repartition between Ee and E1, depends on the stiffness ratio r = kik
