Abstract
Actuating elements made of shape memory alloys can be used in many sectors of industry. Examples include aerospace, auto manufacture, household appliances, medical equipment, heating, ventilation and air conditioning, fire protection, electrical equipment and model construction. Requirements to be taken into account for the selection of the suitable alloy, the component design and the effect stability for a particular application are explained.
