For two typical actuators of intelligent systems (Ni–Ti SMA cantilever and SMA helical spring), the evaluation of their thermal characteristics is presented. In order to determine the transformation temperatures and other thermal parameters of the two studied elements, the attention was concentrated on thermal analysis experiments. For each actuator configuration, comprehensive graphical interfaces have been developed, to run in Visual Basic, with respect to the results of performed thermal analyses.
