About the book

Shape memory alloys (SMAs) constitute a distinctive material class with the capacity to recover apparently continuous deformations and also provide large heating capabilities. These fascinating features had also resulted in an ever-expanding range of engineering applications that cover design issues requiring high-power actuation in such a confined setting. These applications vary from structural systems in automotive to medical stents as well as other biomedical devices. This book aims to offer a working understanding of (SMAs) modeling and approaches to practicing engineers as well as graduate and experienced graduate students with such a concern in the conduct and benefit of active or multifunctional components and "intelligent" systems. It intends to offer the readers the following theories, issues, and references: 1) A complete introduction to the behavior​, including a review of SMA history, a microstructural description of the impacts observed, and engineering applications; 2) Presentation of extra modeling possibilities for SMA material conduct such as plasticity induced by transformation and magnetic SMA modeling. Contributions are welcome in the following topics, but not limited to: Phase transformation in SMAs, Fracture mechanics of Shape Memory Alloys, The Mechanical Aspects of SMAs, Bio-fuctionality of SMAs, Modelling of Transformation-Induced in SMAs, and Shape Memory Alloy Applications In Industrial and biomedical systems.
