Shape Memory Alloys actuators: from the model to the realization

The first part of the course will cover the use of mathematical and engineering instruments for the comprehension and the description of highly non linear and hysteretic materials.
Then design methods and fabrication techniques will be shown both from a theoretical and practical point of view.
Finally the course will move to laboratory activities focused on the realization of a real working device and its functional characterization.
