Final Report - ISAMCO (Ionic polymer-metal composite as sensor and actuator: application in motion control)

Project ID: 505275
Funded under: FP6-NMP

Abstract

This is the final report for the ISAMCO project. Ionic polymer metal composites (IPMC) are dual purpose flexible materials capable of converting electrical energy to mechanical force for actuation, or converting mechanical movement to electrical signals for sensing force and / or displacement. This project aimed at developing a prototype using these materials and their final report reveals how fragmented the field of structural assessment, monitoring and control is and details the activity reports per partner and concludes with their recommendations.
