Paper Abstract

This paper is aimed at to discuss two cases of active composites, (i) ferromagnetic shape memory alloy composites, and (ii) piezoelectric ceramic-shape memory alloy composites. Here we discuss the merits of designing such active composites, for use as possible actuator materials. To optimize the nano-/micro-structures of such composites, we developed analytical models based on Eshelby type modeling. Based on the modeling study; a few cases of optimized active composites are suggested.
