Proc. ASME. SMASIS2022, ASME 2022 Conference on Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems, V001T06A007, September 12–14, 2022
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: SMASIS2022-91587
... Abstract This paper investigates the effect of resistive forces within a variable recruitment (VR) bundle actuators during recruitment state transition. Due to their versatility in design, ease of manufacturing, high force-to-weight ratio, and inherent compliance, FAMs have become a favorable...

Proc. ASME. SMASIS2020, ASME 2020 Conference on Smart Materials, Adaptive Structures and Intelligent Systems, V001T06A003, September 15, 2020
Publisher: American Society of Mechanical Engineers
Paper No: SMASIS2020-2330
... Abstract Variable recruitment fluidic artificial muscle (FAM) bundles consist of multiple FAMs arranged in motor units that are sequentially activated as load demand increases. The conventional configuration of a variable recruitment FAM bundle requires a valve for each motor unit, which...
