This work addresses the basic principles, synthesis / fabrication and applications of smart materials, specifically shape memory materials.
Based on origin, the mechanisms of transformations vary in different shape memory materials and are discussed in different chapters under titles of shape memory alloys, ceramics, gels and polymers.
The scenario of composite formation with polymer matrix and reinforcement filler conductive materials leading to the shape morphing / changing / memorizing behavior is discussed in detail with suitable examples.
The future prospects of such novel materials is included to kindle the imagination of readers that can lead to further development of smart materials.
