Abstract

In this paper the coupled electro-thermo-mechanical actuation of bistable laminates using aligned carbon nanotubes is investigated. Applications for such actuators include ice protection systems (IPS) for aerosurfaces that can dislodge ice accretion via a combination of thermal and mechanical mechanisms. This study presents both new experimental results and multi-physics finite element modelling of the actuation and the resulting large deformation, focusing on both static and transient performance characterization.
