This paper presents a method for design of optimized poroelastic materials which under internal pressurization turn into actuators for application in, for example, linear motors. The actuators are modeled in a two-scale fluid–structure interaction approach. The fluid saturated material microstructure is optimized using topology optimization in order to achieve a better macroscopic performance quantified by vertical or torsional deflections. Constraints are introduced to ensure a certain deflection/extension ratio of the actuator.
