An articulated control surface for flight control utilizes a moldable control surface that is shaped by contracting and elongating shape memory alloys embedded within the control surface. The shape memory alloys contract when heated via an applied electric current and elongate when cooled, i.e., the electric current is removed. The resulting control surface is capable of generating a curved control surface without any electro/mechanical or hydraulic control systems.


A control surface system comprising: a moldable control surface; a shaping means including at least one BiometalTMfiber for shaping said moldable control surface, said shaping means in mechanical communication with said molding surface wherein said shaping means contracts upon heating and expands upon cooling; means for heating said shaping means; and at least one static spring means embedded in said moldable control surface.
