The field of smart materials has experienced a significant growth in the past fifteen years in actuation applications due to their smart and adaptive capabilities. However, most of these smart materials share the drawback of high cost, making their development and implementation difficult. This limitation leads us to the study of Twisted Polymer Actuators (TPAs). TPAs are inexpensive drawn monofilaments of polymers, such as fishing line, capable of actuation under thermal loads. The… CONTINUE READING
