The applicability of shape memory alloys in structures
Languages of publication
The structural application of shape memory materials is relatively new. It is possible that these materials provide the unusual property of creating stress in steel bars in a thermomechanical way. Depending on the alloy composition and production treatment, the characteristic transformation temperatures as well as the mechanical properties of the material vary and this may limit its technical effectiveness. The present work is focused on the material parameters from the point of view of practice.
