SYSTEMATIZATION OF ACTIVE BENDING SHAPE MEMORY ALLOY ACTUATORS
In this paper is presented a systematization of the active bending shape memory alloy actuators by complexity. Each example is treated according to the specific movement characteristics where it can be used, from the fundamental execution element to more complex systems that use various connections of active elements. Present technology is in a search for new solutions for miniature systems improvement. Because of their properties, shape memory alloys are an answer for the development and redesign of the mechanical systems that are constraint by their dimensional parameters.
Key words: shape memory alloy, actuators, active bending, systematization.
