Shape Memory Alloy Research Team (SMART) consists of faculty,
research staff and students, whose main interest is in developing
experimentally verifiable constitutive models for Shape Memory
Alloys (SMAs) together with design capabilities of active or "smart"
structures that utilize the shape memory effect for shape and
actuation control applications. The group is supported by state
of the art thermomechanical characterization facilities, which
are integrated with the dynamics, control, flight simulation and
fluid mechanics laboratory facilities, forming an Intelligent
Systems Laboratory (ILS) network. This research effort initiated
at Texas A&M University in 1992 and has been supported mainly
by the Army Research Office, Office of Naval Research, Air Force
Office of Scientific Research and the State of Texas.
