Abstract

Shape-Memory Alloys (SMAs) are a class of metal materials that exhibit two outstanding properties, the superelastic and the shape-memory effects. Taking advantage of these properties, several SMA actuator wires and plates have been proposed over the last years in robotic, automotive, and biomedical engineering. In this paper, the feasibility of a novel design concept of SMA-reinforced laminated glass panels is proposed, based on an adaptive embedded system built up of SMA wires. Glass panels used as cladding walls in facades have in fact typically high size-to-thickness ratios, hence, major restrictions in design are represented by prevention of glass failure and large deflections. It is expected, based on the current investigation, that useful design recommendations can be derived for this novel design concept.
