are materials that have one or more properties that can be significantly changed in a controlled fashion by external stimuli, such as
there are a number of types of smart materials, some of which are already common. some examples are as following:
materials are materials that produce a voltage when stress is applied. Since this effect also applies in the reverse manner, a voltage across the sample will produce stress within the sample. Suitably designed structures made from these materials can therefore be made that bend, expand or contract when a voltage is applied.
Shape memory alloys
Shape memory polymers
are materials in which large deformation can be induced and recovered through temperature changes or stress changes (
).the large deformation results due to martensitic phase change.
materials exhibit change in shape under the influence of magnetic field and also exhibit change in their magnetization under the influence of mechanical stress.
Magnetic shape memory
alloys are materials that change their shape in response to a significant change in the magnetic field.
are materials that change in volume when the pH of the surrounding medium changes.
change shape under exposure to light.
have the intrinsic ability to repair damage due to normal usage, thus expanding the material's lifetime.
(DEs) are smart material systems which produce large strains (up to 300%) under the influence of an external electric field.
are compounds that undergo a reversible change in temperature upon exposure to a changing magnetic field.
are used to build devices that convert temperature differences into electricity and vice-versa.
