Design of Shape Memory Alloy SMA Actuators

This short monograph presents an analysis and design methodology for shape memory alloy (SMA) components such as wires, beams, and springs for different applications. The solid-solid, diffusionless phase transformations in thermally responsive SMA allows them to demonstrate unique characteristics like superelasticity and shape memory effects. The combined sensing and actuating capabilities of such materials allows them to provide a system level response by combining multiple functions in a single material system. In SMA, the combined mechanical and thermal loading effects influence the functionality of such materials. The aim of this book is to make the analysis of these materials accessible to designers by developing a "strength of materials" approach to the analysis and design of such SMA components inspired from their various applications with a review of various factors influencing the design process for such materials.

Titanium-Nickel (Ti-Ni) alloy specimens with induced shape memory were subjected to various single step current inputs under water-cooled, natural convective air-cooling, and stagnant air-cooling conditions to determine cooling time constants and subsequent delay time for successive actuation. Power input, specimen recovery and reextension displacement with various loads applied to the coil shaped actuator, and temperature distributions along the coil were recorded as functions of time. Results suggested that liquid cooling was a viable method for increased actuator response time. A

Shape memory alloys (SMAs) provide exciting opportunities for miniature actuation systems. As SMA actuators are scaled down in size, cooling increases and bandwidth, improves. However, the inclusion of a bias element with which to cycle the SMA actuator becomes difficult at very small scales. One technique used to avoid the necessity of having to include a separate bias element is the use of local annealing to fabricate a monolithic device out of nickel titanium (NiTi). The actuator geometry is machined
