The present study reports an amended static force model for a pneumatic muscle actuator (PMA) used in different aerodynamic and fluid power system applications. The PMA is a fluid actuator, made of a polymeric bladder enclosed in a braided mesh sleeve. A physics-based static model is developed to predict the deformation response of the actuator for different applied pressure. The significant losses, like braid-to-braid friction, non-cylindrical ends, and bladder hyperelasticity effect, have been considered to enhance the model’s practical feasibility. However, a combined effect of all these losses in the PMA was ignored in the literature. The findings of the derived model agree well with existing experimental results.
