Abstract

Surface micromachined out-of-plane permalloy actuator arrays are developed for controlling the rolling moment of a tail-less delta-wing. The actuator consists of a millimeter sized electroplated permalloy plate with supporting polysilicon beams and is driven by an external magnetic field. Large angular deflections and vertical deflections are demonstrated. The magnetic forces and flow loading involved in the flap operation is on the order of hundred's of μN. Wind-tunnel tests confirm that a rolling moment on the wing can be generated by the flap operation.
