The application of shape memory alloys (SMA) as actuators in smart structures is a quickly developing field. The particular focus of this paper is on the aspects of modeling and simulation of adaptive structures with integrated SMAs using the finite element method (FEM). A number of generic SMA actuator wire/elastic beam systems are presented first to illustrate the different ways of implementation of SMA models into COMSOL. Finally, a first step towards the simulation of an SMA-based flapping… CONTINUE READING
