Shape Memory Alloys & Shape Memory Polymers
Shape Memory Alloys have mainly two phases Austenite and Martensite. Austenite phase is symmetric and Martensite site is less symmetric. shape memory alloys are unique class of metal alloys when heated above certain temperature can recover apparent permanent strains which are caused in it. They have high strength, good elasticity, fatigue resistance, wear resistance, easy fabrication and many more. SMA’s have the potential to be used effectively in seismic region.
Shape Memory polymers are the compound plastics polymers that have a special chemical structure. The glass transition temperature (Tg) plays a vital role in Shape Memory Polymers. Above the Tg these Shape Memory polymers become rubber elastic and flexible. These Materials can solve engineering problems with unachievable effectiveness.
