Paper Abstract

In this paper, an infinite IPMC cylindrical shell filled with steady-flow fluid is studied. An electric signal is applied on the electrode of IPMC, resulting in vibration of the shell-fluid coupled system. Analytical solutions are obtained by the wave propagation method for the displacement field of the cylindrical shell and the pressure in the contained liquid. The velocity field of the contained liquid due to electric potential excitation is also derived. The numerical example shows that the flow velocity can be enhanced by the applied electric potential. This model may be useful for devices using IPMC cylindrical shell structures with or without contained liquids.
