Abstract [en]

In the past fifty years, several attempts have been made to model the characteristics of Pneumatic Artificial Muscles (PAMs). PAM models based on their geometrical properties are the most commonly found ones in the scientific literature. In the process of deriving those models a lot of assumptions and simplifications are made due to the fact that PAM is a highly non-linear form of actuation. The purpose of this study is to propose additional considerations for future model improvements that will augment the overall model accuracy, and will best describe the relationship between force, displacement and non-linear thermal properties of PAM actuators through extensive observation and analysis of its thermodynamic characteristics during long-run operation experiments. In this article multiple experimental results will be presented that prove the relation between the thermodynamic properties of the PAMs, especially in iterative operations, and the accuracy on the muscle's force-prolongation relationship.
