Abstract

In this investigation, we focus on elastomer actuators with aramid-fiber reinforcement. Proper reinforcement of elastomer actuators improves the efficiency of the actuator and is used to adjust anisotropy mainly controlling actuators’ bending response. Experimental and finite element simulation results are presented in the report.
