Power generator using cycling waste heat hot water/cooling water to drive a shape memory alloy wire actuator piston, which drives a hydraulic transmission and power generator. Made a discovery for high cycle ninitol alloy (10 million versus 1 million cycles for regular NT wire) to make the linear actuator work for industrial applications. Uses direct impingement of hot water and cold water to cycle the actuator though...

Low temp iron based SMA's make SMA reinforced prestressed concrete beams practical, which can be prestressed without elaborate tensioning systems.

3D printing tungsten » The Unwanted Blog
Interesting comment about using 3D printing to create specialty engineered alloys, specifically silver impregnated tungsten for better heat conductivity internally to avoid localized melting on tungsten rocket nozzle throats. In this application, it wouldn't be a conventional casted alloy, nor would it be a gradient mixed/poured alloy either, but perhaps a design specific 3D spacial gradient? Or would you be doing the design equivalent of embedding a heat pipe of sorts in the tungsten for short range directed heat transfer?
