We've created a micro-bimorph dual coil that functions as a powerful torsional muscle, driven thermally or electro-thermally by the phase transition of vanadium dioxide," (http://newscenter.
Wu said that the multiple micro-muscles can be assembled into a micro-robotic system that simulates an active neuromuscular system, asserting that the naturally combined functions of proximity sensing and torsional motion allow the device to remotely detect a target and respond by reconfiguring itself to a different shape.
Nature has used torsional rotation based on helically wound muscles for hundreds of millions of years, and exploits this action for such tasks as twisting the trunks of elephants and octopus limbs.
The shear transducers, aligned circumferentially around the pipe end A, are excited simultaneously to produce a fundamental torsional T(0,1) guided wave mode.
These cleaner crystals, when put into a torsional oscillator, changed the rotational period of the device far less than would be expected if supersolidity were happening.
Selim [17] studied the propagation of torsional surface waves in heterogeneous half- space with irregular free surface.
Torsional stiffness (Ncm/deg) was measured as the slope of the force-displacement curve, with a maximum of 5[degrees] of displacement.
The setup of this device provides high torsional moments (up to 35Nm continuously, 120Nm peak) and a maximum constant bending force up to 300N.
Features turntable bearings designed to withstand torsional stresses encountered in heavy loading and high-duty-cycle operations
Previous studies have shown a difference in the behavior of solid-sawn lumber and structural composite lumber (SCL) materials in terms of the elastic constant ratios and in the lateral torsional buckling behavior.
Suited for applications requiring high strength, fatigue resistance and torsional stiffness, 17-4PH stainless steel couplings double the torque capacity of comparable 303 stainless and 7075-T6 aluminum beam couplings.
