The development and testing of a biomimetic active hydrofoil that utilizes Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) actuator technology is presented. This work is the second stage in the development of a vehicle that has a skeletal structure similar to that of aquatic animals and SMA actuators for muscles. The current work describes the development and testing of a six… CONTINUE READING
