Abstract:

In order to achieve a significant increase in toughening and to retain the toughness at elevated temperatures a new multifunctional approach is proposed. The multifunctionality were achieved through directional solidification of polyphase materials comprising the load-bearing and functional phases. The functional phases include shape recovery and health monitoring. In parallel, new ideas about the load bearing phases were investigated to achieve tougher materials.
