Shape Memory Alloys

shape-memory alloy (SMA, smart metal, memory metal, memory alloy, muscle wire, smart alloy) is an alloy that "remembers" its original shape and that when deformed returns to its pre-deformed shape when heated. This material is a lightweight, solid-state alternative to conventional actuators such as hydraulic, pneumatic and motor-based systems. Shape-memory alloys have applications in robotics and automotiveaerospace and bio medical industries. Shape Memory Effect is the unique ability of materials to be severely deformed and then return to their original shape through stimulus which is possessed by the shape memory alloys and hence they are called so. There are many application of shape memory alloys in Bio engineering.
