Description Abstract- The advancement of material technology has paved the way for smart materials to emerge in the civil engineering sector. These smart materials possess the potential to encounter structural deterioration. Therefore, proper attention should be provided to smart materials regarding both research and application. Shape memory alloy (SMA) is a unique smart material that demonstrates growing applicability in numerous sectors. Recently, a lot of emphasis is being given to SMA research with a view to utilizing SMA in civil engineering structures. SMAs have some special properties such as high damping capacity, self-centering mechanism, two-way memory, self-adaptability etc. for which they can be used to make various types of structural control devices. An integrated assessment of the fundamental properties of SMAs, based on the existing data is presented by this paper in a concise and graphical manner. This paper also discusses the possibility of implementing SMAs in a wide range of civil engineering application, therefore motivating the large scale development of smart structures.
