3D experiments shed new light on shape memory alloys

Posted on Mines Newsroom at http://www.minesnewsroom.com/news/researchers-elucidating-unknown-shape-memory-alloys Check out the recognition of our shape memory work in the March 2019 issue of Science!  Shape memory alloys are well known for their remarkable properties —superelasticity, shape memory and actuation allow them to be crumpled up and then spring back to a “remembered” original shape. But the advanced material remains […]
