Paper Abstract

Experimental tests were conducted on a torque actuator based on ferromagnetic shape memory alloy composite and performance data obtained. Based on experimental results of the initial design, several design changes were made to the actuator that resulted in improved torque capability and maximum angle of twist compared to the original design. A full 3-D finite element method model was undertaken to optimize magnetic flux lines generated by the hybrid magnet.
