9780080999203: Shape Memory Alloy Engineering: For Aerospace, Structural and Biomedical Applications

Shape Memory Alloy Engineering introduces materials, mechanical, and aerospace engineers to shape memory alloys (SMAs), providing a unique perspective that combines fundamental theory with new approaches to design and modeling of actual SMAs as compact and inexpensive actuators for use in aerospace and other applications. With this book readers will gain an understanding of the intrinsic properties of SMAs and their characteristic state diagrams, allowing them to design innovative compact actuation systems for applications from aerospace and aeronautics to ships, cars, and trucks. The book realistically discusses both the potential of these fascinating materials as well as their limitations in everyday life, and how to overcome some of those limitations in order to achieve proper design of useful SMA mechanisms.

  • Discusses material characterization processes and results for a number of newer SMAs
  • Incorporates numerical (FE) simulation and integration procedures into commercial codes (Msc/Nastran, Abaqus, and others)
  • Provides detailed examples on design procedures and optimization of SMA-based actuation systems for real cases, from specs to verification lab tests on physical demonstrators
  • One of the few SMA books to include design and set-up of demonstrator characterization tests and correlation with numerical models

About the Author:

Dr. Lecce graduated with honors in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Naples. In 1973 he was appointed Assistant Professor of Aircraft Structures at the Engineering Faculty of the University of Naples "Federico II". In 1982 he became Associate Professor of Aeroelasticity, where he taught this course until 1993. In 1993 he became Full Professor and from 1994 he has been teaching the course on Aircraft Structures. He has been Scientific Consultant for the Vibration and Acoustic Group at CIRA (Italian Aerospace Research Centre). From 1994 to 1997 he was a member of the CIRA Scientific Committee. He has been
responsible for several research contracts sponsored by UE in the field of noise active control in aircraft and helicopters, and European Scientific Coordinator for the MADAVIC (Magnetostrictive Actuators for Damage Analysis and Vibration Control). The results of his research are in more than 110 papers published in national and international journals and Proceedings. He is member of numerous scientific associations such as AIDAA, AIAS, AIV, AIAA, SEM.

Dr. Concilio earned his PhD in Aerospace Engineering at the University of Napoli in 1995. He was awarded the ECATA ABI (Aerospace Business Integration) Diploma on Aerospace Environment, Integrated Product Development and International Project Management, in 2008, at the University of Pisa. He has been working as a Researcher at The Italian Aerospace Research Centre (Centro Italiano Ricerche Aerospaziali, CIRA) since 1989 where he is currently the Head of the Vibroacoustics and Smart Structures Lab. He is a lecturer inside the School of the PhD students of the University of Napoli (SCUDO), about "Smart Structures Theory and Applications”. Responsible for several research contracts sponsored by UE in the field of smart structures and noise and vibration control, in aircraft and helicopters, he was the European Scientific Coordinator of the IDEA PACI project. The results of his research activity are in more than 90 papers published on national and international Journals. He is member of the AIDAA and, SPIE.

About the Author:

Prof. Leonardo Lecce graduated in 1971 with honours in Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Naples Federico II where he spent his academic career. He retired from Full Professor of Aerospace Structures, on September 1st, 2016. Since 2000 to 2006, he had the Aeronautical Engineering Department Chair. He has supervised more than 250 Graduation and 20 Doctoral (PhD) theses. He has been a member of the EU Expert Commission for the evaluation of research proposals many times. He has taken up appointment as a member of the Scientific Committee at the Italian Aerospace Research Centre (CIRA) many times, too. He is a member of the Board of the Italian branch of the Advisory Council for Aeronautics Research in Europe (ACARE), and since 2006, he is a member of the Executive Committee of the European Association of Structural Health Monitoring. Founder of the ex-Alumni Association of the Aerospace Engineers at the University of Naples Federico II (AIAN), he was its President for many years. In 2013, he was named President of the Italian Association of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIDAA), after having directed the Naples Chapter since 2010. He is currently the CEO of the company Novotech - Advanced Aerospace Technology S.r.L.

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.
