Paper Abstract

Design of ferromagnetic shape memory alloy (FSMA) based spring actuators is discussed where a variety of design parameters are included, design of FSMA and FSMA composite, that of compact electromagnet, and the mode of deformation of a helical spring. Advantages of FSMA and FSMA composite are simple design, faster actuation speed large axial stroke and magnetic force.
