Multibody System Simulation of Hysteresis Effect by Micro Textile-Reinforced Compliant Mechanisms with Piezo-electric Actuators
The function integration in textile reinforced compliant structures requires integrated actuation besides mobility and sensors. Especially in micro-mechanisms, the piezo-actors are very useful due to their compactness, high forces and electrical control. However, the actuation hysteresis may be a problem in designing such structures aiming specific movements. Some procedures for multibody simulation taking into account the piezo-electric hysteresis effect are presented in this paper.
