Shape Memory Materials and their Applications
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
This volume contains the proceedings of the International Conference on Shape Memory and Superelastic Technologies and Shape Memory Materials (SMST-SMM 2001) which was held in Kunming, China, on the 2-6 September, 2001. This built on the SMST and SMM international conference series; thus making the present conference more international, and fostering a lively cross-fertilization which could only promote developments in both materials themselves and in their applications. The proceedings comprise 131 papers which cover all aspects of shape memory materials (SMM), and the application of shape memory and superelastic technologies (SMST). The main topics covered are: - Medical applications of Nitinol, and related issues concerning its bio-performance and surface modification, as well as industrial applications of NiTi-, Cu- and Fe-based shape memory alloys.
- Developments in fabrication and property improvement and the novel exploitation of various traditional and newly-emerging shape memory materials including NiTi-based, Cu-based, Fe-based and high-temperature shape memory alloys, as well as thin-film, porous, composite, magnetic and other materials. - The fundamentals of the shape memory effect and of superelasticity; particularly with regard to control of the reversible phase transformation, and the superelastic deformation mechanism.
