Panel Discussion Themes (tentative)


  1. Can quantitative data of functional properties of SMA be derived from quantitative data of the microstructure?

  2. Fatigue of NiTi after different treatments: crack initiation and crack growth?

  3. Can NiTi be replaced by other systems (Fe-based, beta-Ti)?

  4. What other types of shape restoration materials are competitive with SMA  (i.e. SMPolymers, MSMA, but also magnetostrictive materials etc.)

  5. Detwinning/reorientation in magnetic shape memory materials, influencing factors and significance?

  6. Mechanism and driving force of shape recovery in SMAs?
