Shape Memory Alloy Engineering: For Aerospace, Structural and Biomedical Applications, Second Edition embraces new advancements in materials, systems and applications introduced since the first edition. Readers will gain an understanding of the intrinsic properties of SMAs and their characteristic state diagrams. Sections address modeling and design process aspects, explore recent applications, and discuss research activities aimed at making new devices for innovative implementations. The book discusses both the potential of these fascinating materials, their limitations in everyday life, and tactics on how to overcome some limitations in order to achieve proper design of useful SMA mechanisms.
- Provides a greatly expanded scope, looking at new applications of SMA devices and current research activities
- Covers all aspects of SMA technology - from a global state-of-the-art survey, to the classification of existing materials, basic material design, material manufacture, and from device engineering design to implementation within actual systems
- Presents the material within a modular architecture over different topics, from material conception to practical engineering realization

Dr. Antonio Concilio took his degree in Aeronautics Engineering with honour at the University of Napoli “Federico II” (Italia) in 1989; there, he was also awarded his PhD in Aerospace Engineering in 1995. In 2007 he completed the ECATA Master in Aerospace Business Administration, at ISAE-Supaero, Toulouse (France). He supervised more than 10 Doctoral (PhD) theses. Since 1989 he works as a Researcher at the Italian Aerospace Research Centre (Italia), where he is currently the Head of the Adaptive Structures Division. Since 2005, he is a lecturer at the PhD School “SCUDO” at the University of Napoli “Federico II” (“Introduction to Smart Structures, Theory and Applications”). He is author of more than 150 scientific papers, presented at conferences or published into specialised journals.

Vincenza Antonucci works at the Istituto per i Polimeri, Compositi e Biomateriali in Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Italy.
Vincenza Antonucci (Researcher ID: AAX-7901-2020, ORCID 0000-0002-5708-7456) is a permanent researcher at the Institute for Polymers, Composites and Biomaterials (IPCB) of CNR since 2001, where she performs research in the area of polymer-based composite materials and their manufacturing technologies and in the development of new hybrid materials based on natural (hemp, flax, cotton) or mineral (basalt) fibres. The main scientific results are summarized and diffused by the publications of more than 65 papers on international technical journals, 7 books chapters, one national patent. Further, Vincenza Antonucci manages research activities in the frame of national and regional research projects, carries out training activities through training courses and tutoring of degree and doctoral theses.
