HAIGH, CASEY DOUGLAS. Modeling, Optimization and Experimental Validation of Shape Memory Alloy Bending Actuators. (Under the direction of Dr.Gregory Buckner). This thesis details the development of a computational model to investigate and optimize the performance of shape memory alloy (SMA) bending actuators. These actuators (approximately 11mm in length) consist of curved SMA wires embedded within elastic sleeves and are intended for positioning and anchoring robotic catheters inside blood… CONTINUE READING
