In this paper, we introduce an analytical modeling approach for dynamic shape characterization of the ionic polymer metal composite (IPMC) actuator under the input voltages based on the RC electrical model and mechanical beam model. The proposed method can be used for modeling the general IPMC bending actuator in a single segment or multiple segments or(More)
The behavior of many mechanical systems, such as overhead cranes, can be predicted through intuitive observation of their motion under various forces. Mathematical modeling of an overhead crane shows that it is highly coupled. Nonetheless, it is surprisingly easy for an experienced crane operator to drive payloads to target positions with minimal cable(More)
