Design, Analysis, and Testing of Shape Memory Alloy based Robotic Morphing Wing
Abstract: This research paper focuses on design, analysis, and testing of a smart robotic wing, which can morph its shape between two airfoils depending on the environmental conditions. Shape Memory Alloy (SMA)(Ni-Ti) is used to obtain the unique morphing of the robotic wing. It also discusses in detail the design flow, CAD, components, and CFD analysis and results for DRS in FSAE style racecar. Further, the paper presents the testing of the Ni-Ti alloy to obtain the morphing temperature and the challenges in training the wing. Finally, the future scope of this technology and the parameters to consider are also discussed.
