Introduction to Shape Memory Alloys Academic Article uri icon


  • 2015, The Author(s). Classical materials like metals and alloys have played a significant role as structural materials for many centuries. Engineers have designed components and selected alloys by employing the classical engineering approach of understanding the macroscopic properties of the material and selecting the appropriate one to match the desired functionality based on the application. With advancements in material science and with increasing space and logistical limitations, scientists have been constantly developing high performing materials for various applications.
