... the wing box. The four-ply laminated composite flexible extrados is powered by two individually controlled shape memory alloy (SMA) actuators. Fulfilling the requirements imposed by the morphing wing application to the force-displacement characteristics of the actuators, a novel design methodology...

... carbon fiber/polyurethane elastomer laminates. Lower skin buckling, actuator air leaks, and actuator attachment problems were resolved in the second generation. A finite element model of the second wing was developed and is being used to refine the morphing wing test-bed. The second wing fabrication...

... of composite laminates at cryogenic temperatures is chosen because the design is sensitive to uncertainties. For illustration, variability reduction takes the form of quality control, while error is reduced by including the effect of chemical shrinkage in the analysis. Tradeoff plots of uncertainty reduction...
