Editorial Reviews

Review

' ... summarises the understanding and applications of shape memory materials ... of a remarkably high and uniform standard.' Andrew Briggs, The Times Higher Education Supplement

' ... a concise account of shape memory alloys, aimed both at those who are new to the field and those who are actively researching in it ... Overall, I can recommend it.' J. S. Foord, Chemistry in Britain

Book Description

The shape memory effect is a unique property of certain alloys. Even though the alloy is deformed in the low temperature phase, it recovers its original shape on being heated to a critical higher temperature. This book presents a systematic and up-to-date account of all aspects of shape memory materials, from fundamentals to applications. The book contains chapters on shape memory ceramics and polymers as well as shape memory alloys, making the book a comprehensive account of the field.
