Paper Title:
Equivalent Modeling for Shape Design of IPMC (Ionic Polymer-Metal Composite) as Flapping Actuator
  Abstract

In this work, flapping wings actuated by IPMCs are designed and simulated to mimick birds wing. In order for the wing to generate lift and thrust during flapping motion, the wing must be able to flap and twist at the same time. For design of such wings, shape of the IPMC actuator need to be designed such that the actuator can create bending and twisting motions during wing strokes. To determine the shape of the IPMC actuator, an equivalent bimorph beam model has been proposed based on the measured force-displacement data of an IPMC. The equivalent model and thermal analogy are used for numerical simulation of IPMC actuated wings to determine suitable shape of the IPMC actuator. In this way, we could select a best performing wing that can create the largest twist motion during flapping of the wing.
