2018 journal article

Design and analysis of electrohydraulic pressure systems for variable recruitment in fluidic artificial muscles

SMART MATERIALS AND STRUCTURES, 27(10).

By: E. Chapman, T. Jenkins* & M. Bryant*

author keywords: fluidic artificial muscles; McKibben muscle; variable recruitment; hydraulic artificial muscle; bio-inspired; efficiency
TL;DR: A coupled dynamic model of the FAM system is developed and applied to study the implications of hydraulic power system architecture for both variable recruitment actuator bundles and equivalent single-muscle actuators, revealing that variable recruitment offers bandwidth advantages over the single equivalent actuator regardless of the hydraulic power architecture that is selected.
