Paper Title:
SMA Thin Strip for Rotary-Driving Element
  Abstract

If a shape-memory alloy (SMA) thin strip is applied as an element subjected to torsion, a rotary driving element with a simple mechanism can be developed. The torsion tests were carried out for the SMA thin strip. Torque and recovery torque, both increase in proportion to the angle of twist and temperature. The recoverable strain energy increases in proportion to temperature. The dissipated work decreases slightly with an increase in temperature. A means of opening and closing a door with an element driven by an SMA thin strip is demonstrated.
