The shape memory alloy damper and foam aluminum composite damper are discussed. About shape memory alloy damper, its damping mechanism and characteristics, super elastic mechanical property test of SMA material, constitutive model, one dimensional simplified mechanical model, mechanical model of multi-dimensional simplified SMA are introduced. Basic structure and working principle, mechanical performance test, test result analysis of tension-compression SMA damper and composite friction SMA damper are elaborated respectively. About foam aluminum composite damper and AF/PU composite damper, the preparation of foam aluminum composite damping material, damping mechanism and characteristics, deformation mechanism, phenomenological constitutive model, mechanical model of AF/PU composite material and their damper are introduced respectively.
