Angela and I have been working on testing the strain of SCP actuator this week. We designed a testing system to allow rapid prototyping for our mechanical loigic. By attaching the actuator on the bistable beam, the strain of the actuator can be measured with small or without preloaded tension. And through screening analysis, we are able to tell the strain of the actuator. For the following week, we will continue to run the strain test and draw a conclusion.
