Abstract:The behavior of an idealized magnetic microactuator is modeled and analyzed. A two parameter mass-spring model is shown to exhibit a bifurcation from one to three steady states as the geometry of the device is altered. In addition we obtain solutions of the differential equation governing the motion of a forced elastic membrane and find similar phenomena. Stability analysis determines that in the case of three steady states that two are stable and one is unstable.
