Numerical Modeling of Shape Memory Alloy Thin Film Actuators and Their Applications


Article Preview

The thermomechanical behavior of SMA thin film actuator and their application are investigated. The numerical algorithm of the 2-D SMA thermomechanical constitutive equation is developed using user material (UMAT) subroutine written by FORTRAN. For the numerical results of SMA thin film, the ABAQUS finite element program has been utilized with UMAT subroutine of the numerical algorithm of SMA. The application of SMA thin film for the membrane pump actuator is demonstrated.
