Paper Abstract

Smart materials and structures offer significant commercial potential beyond their intended aerospace uses. ITN Energy Systems has been aggressively pursuing the commercialization to shape memory alloys, and present herein several product development case studies. We also provide recommendations for material improvements which would enhance marketability of shape memory and other smart materials systems.
