Morphing wings that transform their configuration seamlessly are expected to improve maneuverability and reduce noise and energy consumption of airplanes compared to conventional wings deformation including gaps and kinks. In addition, solid actuators such as electromagnetic motors and shape memory alloys (SMAs) reduce weight and maintenance cost compared to conventional hydraulic actuators. In this paper, a morphing flap model with a 500mm span × 642mm chord is developed, one-third of thedoi:10.2322/tastj.15.a75 fatcat:33wb5irzorcx7ln7fg2t7rvvxu
