Paper Abstract

A new diaphragm actuator based on the ferromagnetic shape memory alloy (FSMA) composite is designed where the FSMA composite is composed of ferromagnetic soft iron and superelastic grade of NiTi shape memory alloy (SMA). The actuation mechanism for the FSMA composite plate of the actuator is the hybrid mechanism that we proposed previously. This diaphragm actuator is the first design toward designing a new synthetic jet actuator that will be used for active flow control technology on airplane wings. The design of the FSMA composite diaphragm actuator was established first by using both mechanical and ferromagnetic finite element analyses with an aim of optimization of the actuator components. Based on the FEM results, the first generation diaphragm actuator system was assembled and its static and dynamic performance was experimentally evaluated.
