Shape Memory Microactuators (Microtechnology and MEMS) by Manfred Kohl

By Manfred Kohl

Overview of contemporary achievements, describing the microactuator improvement of microvalves and liner actuators comprehensively from notion via prototype. additional key elements incorporated are 3-dimensional types for dealing with advanced SMA actuator geometries and paired simulation exercises that take multifunctional homes under consideration. Mechanical and thermal optimization standards are brought for actuator layout, permitting an optimal use of the form reminiscence impact. it's proven that a number of the prototypes offered, e.g. SMA microgrippers, already outperform traditional components.
