Buckling dielectric elastomer actuators are special type of electro-mechanical transducers that exploit electro-elastic instability phenomena to generate large out-of-plane axial-symmetric deformations of circular membranes made of non-conductive rubbery material. In this paper a simplified explicit analytical model and a general monolithic finite element model are described for the coupled electro-mechanical analysis and simulation of buckling dielectric elastomer membranes which undergo large electrically induced displacements. Experimental data are also reported which validate the developed models.

Abstract

Buckling dielectric elastomer actuators are special type of electro-mechanical transducers that exploit electro-elastic instability phenomena to generate large out-of-plane axial-symmetric deformations of circular membranes made of non-conductive rubbery material. In this paper a simplified explicit analytical model and a general monolithic finite element model are described for the coupled electro-mechanical analysis and simulation of buckling dielectric elastomer membranes which undergo large electrically induced displacements. Experimental data are also reported which validate the developed models.
