This thesis describes the analysis of a locking mechanism designed by ProTeqt Technologies. More specifically, the analysis considers the mechanism after the implementation of a resonantly coupled circuit used to receive and transmit wireless energy. Ultimately, the wireless energy is used to generate heat, which in turn causes a polymeric material to expand, thereby creating a mechanical force to disengage the locking mechanism. The analysis considers the force generated through wireless transmission, as well as the forces required to disengage the locking mechanism. The general physics of wireless energy transmission through resonant coupling is presented, as well as design specifications and manufacturing techniques used to produce the secondary circuit. Force requirements and design specifications that drive the success of the locking mechanism are then discussed before the presentation of coinciding results.
