Paper Abstract

The shape memory alloys possess attractive characteristics as actuation elements. They are capable of transforming thermal energy into mechanical work. This paper presents our results in developing a modular linear and rotary family of shape memory alloy actuators, designed in several dimensions, in order to actuate high performance precision engineering and mechatronic systems.
