Modeling of Electrochemical-Mechanical Deformations of Ionic Polymer Metal Composite
The bending deformation of the ionic polymer metal composite (IPMC) upon low electric field is dominated by internal water redistribution. The one-dimensional finite element formulation is conducted for the basic field equations governing electrochemical response of the IPMC. The three-dimensional finite element analysis for the mechanical response of the IPMC beam is also conducted. Some numerical studies are carried out to show the validity of the present formulation.
