Properties and Characterization of Smart Materials
Smart materials must possess some important properties like technical properties, including mechanical properties such as plastic flow, fatigue and yield strength and behavioural characteristics such as damage tolerance, electrical, heat and fire resistance. They must also possess technological properties, encompassing manufacturing, forming, welding abilities, thermal processing, waste level, workability, automation and repair capacities. Economic criteria, related to raw material and production costs, supply expenses and availability. Environmental characteristics including features such as toxicity and pollution. Sustainable development criteria, implying reuse and recycling capacities.
