Abstract

An illustrative documentation of some standard experimental tests of electro-active VHB 4910 polymer under application of purely mechanical and electro-mechanically coupled loadings is presented. VHB 4910 is a very soft polymer that has potential applications as an electro-active polymer in the prod...
