Paper Title:
Experiments and Analysis of Bending Dielectric Elastomer Actuator
  Abstract

A kind of compact bending dielectric elastomer actuator is designed and manufactured using VHB4910 as the actuating material. In the contrastive experiments, the maximum displacement of 6.1mm can be achieved, and on the voltage differences of 0.9kv, the active bending of actuator is 8.1°. The research of dielectric elastomer actuator can provide an instruction for the design, analysis and implementation of this kind of actuator.
