Near Net Shape Fabrication Technology for Shape Memory Alloy Components, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

Near Net Shape Fabrication Technology for Shape Memory Alloy Components, Phase I
This STTR Phase I effort proposes to develop an innovative, affordable processing route for larger-sized shape memory alloy (SMA) components. Despite significant advances over the last decade, innovative, cost-effective shape processing techniques yielding controlled microstructure-properties are still needed for SMA's. An advanced reactive metal casting technology is applied in this project to manufacture SMA's. Casting offers a relatively low-cost approach for fabricating near net-shape components, and would allow for widespread acceptance and application due to its cost-effectiveness. More »
