  • A novel heat engine utilizing macroscopic shape changes associated with a thermallyactivated phase transformation in alloys of nickel and titanium has been demonstrated. Engines capable of converting small temperature differences at near-ambient temperature to mechanical work are seen as a promising technology for the recovery of thermal energy currently going to waste. Depending on future economic feasibility, such engines may be practically applied to conversion of solar, geothermal, oceanic… CONTINUE READING
