Shape memory alloys respond to the increasing demand of smart and multi-stimuli responsive systems. Shape memory, pseudoelasticity, damping capacity and adaptive properties can find application in important sectors such as biomedicine, aerospace, building technologies, and advanced electromechanics. Although the majority of applications is based on NiTi alloys, an increasing effort has been devoted to the research of new materials: e.g. Ni-free, high temperature, composite, magnetic materials. Magnetic shape memory alloys are also magnetically responsive. They show a variety of multifunctional effects that open new exciting fields of research and applications. These include ferroic cooling, energy harvesting and magnetic actuation.
The control of the materials properties at different lengthscales is crucial for their fully exploitation. Advanced manufacturing methods, e.g. additive manufacturing, are particularly interesting for the realization of advanced geometries and architectures and the exploitation of compositional gradients. On the other hand the development of micro and nano-fabrication techniques enables wide perspectives of application and integration in microsystems.
This Symposium will highlight recent developments in the realization and property optimization of shape memory alloys, covering both fundamental aspects and applications.
The Symposium will welcome contributed papers related to the design, simulation, theory, processing, characterization and optimization of materials and devices.
