The aim of this book is to understand and describe the martensitic phase transformation and the process of martensite platelet reorientation. These two key elements enable the author to introduce the main features associated with the behavior of shape-memory alloys (SMAs), i.e. the one-way shape-memory effect, pseudo-elasticity, training and recovery.4/5(2).   About this book The aim of this book is to understand and describe the martensitic phase transformation and the process of martensite platelet reorientation.

Book Description Shape Memory Alloy Engineering introduces materials, mechanical, and aerospace engineers to shape memory alloys (SMAs), providing a unique perspective that combines fundamental theory with new approaches to design and modeling of actual SMAs as compact and inexpensive actuators for use in aerospace and other applications. Muscle wires, nitinol, Flexinol or -formally called- shape-memory alloys (SMA) present a huge demand today because of their high power/weight ratio. That means that, when combined with cheap, light-weighted batteries available in the market, they are the best choice for mobile : Benjamin C. Lawson.

This book provides a working knowledge of the modeling and applications of shape memory alloys (SMAs) to practicing engineers and graduate and advanced undergraduate students with an interest in the behavior and utility of active or multifunctional materials and "smart" structures. Shape Memory Alloy Engineering introduces materials, mechanical, and aerospace engineers to shape memory alloys (SMAs), providing a unique perspective that combines fundamental theory with new approaches to design and modeling of actual SMAs as compact and inexpensive actuators for use in aerospace and other applications. With this book readers will gain an understanding of the intrinsic . Abstract The first chapter of this book delivers a general introduction about the field of shape memory alloys treated as a generic example of adaptive material. The special behavior of SMA materials, also called shape memory effects, is described. A brief history of the discovery of various types of SMA alloys . As it is expected that superelastic Ti alloys will further expand the applications of shape memory alloys within the biomedical field, this book provides a comprehensive review of these new findings in Ti-base shape memory and superelastic alloys.

Shape memory wires and coil springs have been applied as actuators in automobiles and ecologic products. The developments of novel shape memory alloys, such as high temperature shape memory alloys and Ni-free shape memory alloys, and advanced fabrication technologies will further accelerate and expand applications of shape memory alloys. Shape memory alloys for biomedical applications provides a comprehensive review of the use of shape memory alloys in these and other areas of medicine. Part one discusses fundamental issues with chapters on such topics as mechanical properties, fabrication of materials, the shape memory effect, superelasticity, surface modification and biocompatibility. This book provides a systematic approach to realizing NiTi shape memory alloy actuation, and is aimed at science and engineering students who would like to develop a better understanding of the behaviors of SMAs, and learn to design, simulate, control, and fabricate these actuators in a systematic approach.   Shape Memory Alloy Engineering, Second Edition, builds upon the success of the first edition, while embracing the advancements in new materials, new systems and new applications. Readers will gain an understanding of the intrinsic properties of SMAs and their characteristic state diagrams, allowing for the design of innovative compact actuation Edition: 2.
