Offering a review of the systematic progress of this emerging class, this work provides a broad overview of shape-memory polymers (SMP) and their composites. This text presents detailed information on the wide range of SMP applications, including aeronautics, astronautics, biomedicine, and the automobile industry. Industry experts use each chapter to discuss an important aspect of these novel smart materials, from their properties and fabrication to the actuation approaches that can be used to trigger shape recovery. This comprehensive book also covers topics such as multifunctional SMPs and their composites as well as SMP-based composite materials.
