4 June 1999 Simulation and control of SMA actuators
Author Affiliations +
A one-dimensional model for shape memory alloys is presented that permits the simulation of actuatoric behavior. It is an improved version of the Muller-Achenbach single crystal model and calculates the length change as a response to electric heating. Based on this model, a polycrystalline version is developed, which is shown to be in excellent agreement with experimental results. Finally, as an illustrative application, a real-time control is calculated for an adaptive beam using SMA actuators.
