Shape Memory Alloys : Manufacture, Properties & Applications, Hardback Book

Shape Memory Alloys : Manufacture, Properties & Applications Hardback

Edited by H.R. Chen


A shape memory alloy (SMA, also known as a smart metal, memory alloy, or muscle wire) is an alloy that "remembers" its shape, and can be returned to that shape after being deformed, by applying heat to the alloy.

When the shape memory effect is correctly harnessed, this material becomes a lightweight, solid-state alternative to conventional actuators such as hydraulic, pneumatic, and motor-based systems.

Shape memory alloys have numerous applications in the medical and aerospace industries.

This book presents the latest research in the field from around the globe.
