Paper Title:
Potential of Shape Memory Complex Materials SMC as Welfare Equipment Actuator
  Abstract

Intelligent materials have been studied in various fields. In this study, Shape Memory Composite (SMC) is produced as one of those intelligent materials. SMC consists of Shape Memory Polymer (SMP) and Shape Memory Alloy (SMA). These two materials possess different characteristics in temperature changes. Therefore, we investigated the possibility of the SMC’s actuator function as an intelligent material. The actuator function is achieved by applying a current to SMA fiber of SMC to grab and release objects. As a result of this investigation, meaningful data for actuator to design SMC is obtained.
