Keywords: mathematical modelling; electrothermal oscillator; Shape Memory Alloys

Abstract: The paper deals with mathematical modelling and experimental investigation of a novel electrothermal oscillator based on Shape Memory Alloys (SMA). The operation of the oscillator is based on a heated by DC electric current SMA wire, mounted with a pre-tension between the free ends of two symmetrically arranged cantilever beams. Crystallographic changes in the SMA wire, consisting in the transition between austenitic and martensitic phases due to the periodic heating and cooling, lead to its intermittent shortening and stretching and thus mechanical and electrical vibrations are generated. The mathematical model of the system is derived using Lagrange-Maxwell formalism, Joule-Lenz law and Newton's law of cooling. Simulation results show two types of periodic motion - the first one with low frequency is due to the temperature variation in the wire and the second one is with much more higher frequency and is due to the mass and elastic properties of the system. Experimental validation o
