Recently, shape memory alloy(SMA) is regarded as one promising material element natively with intelligent functions. I introduce the fundamental design concept and several trials for developing intelligent (smart) materials and structures by using shape memory alloy. Moreover, I introduce our recent works and point out the necessity for developing fundamental techniques to realize the intelligent materials using SMA.
