This presentation gives an overview of the Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) based approach to the research and development of adaptive/smart/morphing airframe structural technologies at the Advanced Composites Division, NAL. Central to this approach is the efficient integration of thermal NiTi SMA elements with polymeric carbon composites. The SMA elements could be either externally placed or embedded in the polymeric composite. The external connection could be in the form of mechanisms / devices. The various activities related to morphing technologies are briefly discussed below:
