Paper Title:
The Application of Shape Memory Polymer Composite in Space Deployable Truss Structure
  Abstract

In this paper, the advantages of smart materials and structures are introduced. Because of the influence of friction, it’s difficult to deploy the large ring truss antenna driving by cable. The SPMC hinge is added in the deployable joint, the deployable antenna is deployed by heating the material to cause recovery strain, which substitutes for the driving by cable. Describe the behavior of SPMC material, and do the simulation, from the analysis results, we can aim that the stress of SPMC satisfies the yielding stress when the node is furled. At the same time, the force to expand the antenna caused by heating SPMC is also obtained. Compared the different size of width, the variation of recovery force can be got.
