About this book

This book introduces readers to the fundamental properties and practical applications of shape memory alloys (SMAs) from the perspective of seismic engineering. It objectively discusses the superiority of this novel class of materials, which could potentially overcome the limitations of conventional seismic control technologies. The results, vividly presented in the form of tables and figures, are demonstrated with rigorous experimental verifications, supplemented by comprehensive numerical and analytical investigations.

The book allows readers to gain an in-depth understanding of the working mechanisms of various SMA-based structural devices and members, including beam-to-column connections, dampers, and braces, while also providing them with a broader vision of next-generation, performance-based seismic design for novel adaptive structural systems. Helping to bridge the gap between material science and structural engineering, it also sheds light on the potential of commercializing SMA products in the construction industry. The cutting-edge research highlighted here provides technical incentives for design professionals, contractors, and building officials to use high-performance and smart materials in structural design, helping them stay at the forefront of construction technology.

About the authors

Dr. Cheng Fang is currently an Associate Professor at Department of Structural Engineering, College of Civil Engineering, Tongji University, China. He received his B.Eng. in Civil Engineering from Tongji University in 2007, and subsequently obtained his M.Sc. (with Distinction) and Ph.D. in Structural Engineering from Imperial College London in 2008 and 2011, respectively. Prior to joining Tongji University, he worked as a Lecturer in Structural Engineering at Newcastle University (UK). His main research areas include design of steel and composite structures, smart materials and structures, and seismic resilience. He has authored more than 40 technical articles in leading international journals in the above areas. He has also secured more than 3 million RMB of funding as a Principal Investigator in the field of shape memory alloy research.

Dr. Wei Wang obtained his Bachelor's Degree in 1999 from Tongji University, and his PhD degree in Structural Engineering in 2005 from Tongji University. Then he worked as a postdoctoral scholar in 2009 at Georgia Institute of Technology, USA. Now he is a Professor and Deputy Head of Department of Structural Engineering at Tongji University. He has published more than 60 SCI-indexed journal articles, and numerous peer-reviewed conference papers. Professor Wei Wang served as the PI of four research projects funded by National Science Foundation of China (NSFC). He is also an executive editor of the International Journal of Frontier of Structural and Civil Engineering (SCI-indexed). His research interest is Multi-hazard resistant design and assessment of resilient steel and composite structures.
