This paper presents a study on the bimetallic strip smart actuator with six parameters. The impacts of these parameters on characteristics of the actuator, namely, driving torque, output displacement, and stiffness are analyzed. Then, the finite element analysis of the smart actuator is conducted and the natural frequency of the actuator is discussed. These analyses are expected to be applied for optimal design of this smart actuator.
