Processing of shape memory alloys is attempted abundantly considering its numerous applications in different sectors of industries. However, it is not easy to process shape memory alloys as it has unique properties of pseudoelasticity, tendency to form intermetallic compounds, different phase transformation temperatures and deformation behavior. Different processing techniques reported for shape memory alloys such as powder metallurgy, additive processing, mechanical processing, and thermo-mechanical processing are considered in this chapter that addresses process condition, process parameters, and properties after processing.
