In this paper we focus on a study which involves quantifying the effects of Macro Fiber Composite (MFC) actuators on the pattern and magnitude of wrinkles in a membrane when exposed to various loadings. An ABAQUS finite element code is employed for this research. The membrane in this study has a rectangular shape which is clamped at one edge and is free to move in the horizontal direction at the other edge. MFC actuators are bounded to the membrane to make a bimorph configuration.
