Numerical Analysis of Vascular Stents Exploiting Shape-memory-alloy Behavior

Abstract

Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) have the unique capability to recover the original shape, once mechanically deformed, through mechanical unloading, Superelastic Effect (SE), or through thermal loading, Shape Memory Effect (SME). These peculiar behaviors, coupled with a good material biocompatibility, have stimulated a wide diffusion of SMA in the area of… (More)
