Advances in Aerospace Sciences (Shape Memory Polymers)
Many applications ranging from biomedical to aerospace have been proposed for the use of shape memory polymers (SMPs). SMP foams have been proposed for applications in space. Large structures used in space such as solar sails, solar arrays, sunshields and radar antennas require heavy and space consuming mechanical mechanisms for deployment and control. The major challenges for SMPs are improving stress recovery and cycle time. The cycle time depends on material properties like geometric consideration and experimental conditions; therefore, it should always be reported in light of these other parameters to allow for appropriate selection.
Attracting and retaining clients and pressure to lower cost are the biggest challenges for these products. Furthermore, keeping up with new regulations and standards is also one of the key restraints for the Aerospace Foam Market.
