Paper Abstract

Various design modifications were proposed for a torque actuator based on ferromagnetic shape memory alloy composites. These modifications were implemented into the design of the torque actuator, and prototypes were built and measured for their maximum torque, angle of twist, and work output characteristics. The design changes had an effect of increasing one or more of these characteristics with each iteration.
