Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The polyurethane shape-memory polymer originally developed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industry, Japan, is not only thermo-responsive, but also moisture-responsive. This paper summarises the key thermo-mechanical behaviours and thermo/moisture-responsive properties of this SMP and its composites, and presents some engineering applications, including in defence and aerospace engineering, utilising these features.
