Using Shape Memory Alloys in Aircraft Wings to Reduce Turbulence
A video clip showing the use of shape memory alloys in aircraft wings could be used to reduce turbulence in airplanes. The shape memory effect of alloys of titanium, nickel and copper is demonstrated and explained. Such alloys have been used to create a prototype aircraft wing. The advantages of the materials in this application are outlined.
