Brief Introduction of Shape Memory Alloy:
A shape-memory alloy (also know as SMA, smart metal, memory metal, memory alloy, muscle wire, smart alloy) are considered one of the most promising smart materials on the market today. They can provide novel solution in several ﬁelds, for various applications (e.g. actuator, biomedical application, clamping systems, etc.). Among the commercially available Shape Memory Alloys, nickel–titanium (Ni–Ti and Ni–Ti based) ones are outstanding due to their excellent performance, reliability, and strain recovery properties. Ni–Ti is attractive for medical applications due to its biocompatibility, corrosion resistance and fatigue behavior.
Applications of Shape Memory Alloy:
Shape-memory alloys are applied in medicine, for example, as fixation devices for osteotomies in orthopaedic surgery, in dental braces to exert constant tooth-moving forces on the teeth.
- Nitinol is being used in robotics actuators and micromanipulators to simulate human muscle motion. The main advantage of Nitinol is the smooth, controlled force it exerts upon activation.
- Other miscellaneous applications of shape memory alloys include use in household appliances, in clothing, and in structures.
