  Shape-memory polymers (SMPs) are one type of smart materials that are capable to recover from a “fixed” temporary shape to a “memorized” original shape under external stimulus. This chapter provides a comprehensive overview about the preparation methods of shape-memory polymers, polymer blends, and : Xiao-dong Qi, Yong Wang.   In order to describe the thermomechanical properties in shape memory polymer of polyurethane series, a thermomechanical constitutive model was developed by modifying a standard linear viscoelastic model. The model involved a slip element due to internal friction and took account of thermal expansion. In order to describe the variation in Cited by: Properties of shape-memory polymers. SMPs can retain two or sometimes three shapes, and the transition between those is induced by temperature. In addition to temperature change, the shape change of SMPs can also be triggered by an electric or magnetic field, light or solution. As well as polymers in general, SMPs also cover a wide property-range from stable to biodegradable, from soft . Shape memory polymers (SMPs) have received significant attention from scientists in recent years. This paper presents a simple route to design light-thermo stage-responsive SMPs.

Shape memory polymers (SMPs) are smart materials that, as a result of an external stimulus such as temperature, can change from a temporary deformed shape back to an original shape. SMPs are finding an increasing use in such areas as clothing where they respond dynamically to changes in heat and. After being severely and quasi-plastically distorted, shape memory materials (SMMs) are able to recover their original shape when a right stimulus is applied phenomenon is known as the shape memory effect (SME), and it has been found in a number of material systems, including some alloys, polymers and ceramics etc Technically speaking, the procedure to fix the temporary shape.

In this book, the self-healing of composite structures with shape memory polymer as either matrix or embedded suture is systematically discussed. Self-healing has been well known in biological systems for many years: a typical example is the self-healing of human skin. Whilst a minor wound can be self-closed by blood clotting, a deep and wide cut needs external help by suturing.
