The purpose of thesis is to show the result of the analysis Pneumatic Artificial Muscle (PAM). Thus, more information to understand on its behavior in generating force for actuation is obtained. The content of this report consists of few sections such as the introduction, literature review, methodology, result and discussion and conclusion. The introduction part consists of project background and problem statement that discuss PAM behavior while researching about this project. The introduction also discuss about the objective and scope of study which is to analyze the behavior of Pneumatic Muscle by using Finite Element Analysis on ANSYS software. The methodology and project planning is stated to show the flow of the thesis and also the Gantt chart provided shows the working schedule that I follow during all this period of year. The result and discussion shows that the construction of 3D PAM model is mainly consists of flexible, inflatable membrane for which the material type and properties are being specified as neoprene rubber. The result of the model is verified according to the solution obtained from the literature. The thesis is concluded by making an observation towards muscle deformation supported evidence by tables provided by ANSYS software. The deformation of the muscle shows the structural behavior changes after Finite Element Analysis. The PAM expanded with the change in volume and also in diameter. The volume increases while the length decrease when pressure applied.
