IPMCs are electroactive polymers which can be used both as sensors and as actuators. A multiphysics model of IPMC devices working as actuators is here presented. The model integrates electrical, mechanical, chemical and thermal effects in a unique solution and attention is focused on the coupling factors among the physics domains. The model was validated through experimentation.
