The ability to actively control the shape of aerospace structures has initiated research regarding the use of Shape Memory Alloy actuators. These actuators can be used for morphing or shape change by controlling their temperature, which is effectively done by applying a voltage difference across their length. The ability to characterize this temperature… CONTINUE READING
