Abstract

To continue to improve active structure performance, better motion amplification methods are needed. Although PZT stacks are an obvious choice for developing active structures using buckling beam amplifiers, any other active material could be used to buckle the beams. One could use the active fiber composites developed by MIT and NASA Langley, electrostrictive polymers, dielectric elastomers, magnetostrictive materials, and magnetic shape memory alloys.
