Introducing a new Nitinol based actuator combining the two interesting attributes of this material: shape memory and superelasticity, in a simple and reliable device.
It is intended to be applied in Architectural Technology to move flexible and lightweight surfaces (canopies) to create shadows over buildings, streets and squares in order to decrease electrical power consumption on air cooling systems in hot climate countries. Shadow generator elements which activate with the hot morning sunlight and return to their original position at night, with no need for user intervention, no sounds or vibrations, no motors, low maintenance and high reliability.
