Abstract: front page image
(EN)A moveable joint comprising a first member and a second member moveably connected to the first member, a shape-memory-alloy member coupled to the first member and engageable with the second member, and a biasing means configured to bias the second member from a first position relative to the first member towards a second position relative to the first member. Movement of the second member between the first position and the second position is limited by the shape-memory-alloy member such that the position of the second member relative to the first member is determined by the shape of the shape-memory-alloy member.
(FR)L'invention concerne un joint mobile comprenant un premier élément et un second élément relié de façon mobile au premier élément, un élément en alliage à mémoire de forme couplé au premier élément et pouvant venir en prise avec le second élément, et un moyen de sollicitation configuré pour solliciter le second élément d'une première position vers une seconde position par rapport au premier élément. Le mouvement du second élément entre la première position et la seconde position est limité par l'élément en alliage à mémoire de forme de telle sorte que la position du second élément par rapport au premier élément soit déterminée par la forme de l'élément en alliage à mémoire de forme.
