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.

Abstract

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.
