The design of a device called “intelligent slades” is present. The device operate automatically with temperature changes open and closed the glasses of the slades with out employed electrical or electronic components typically employed in conventional automatic systems.

The designing of slades consist of a conventional mark doted with a mechanism which transmit the glasses weight to a set of plates made with a shape memory alloy (SMA).

The mechanism consists in two gears coupled to the mechanism of manual close-open and to a fixed shell which contain several shape memory plates.

For the designing of slades was developing an engineering model for determination of the SMA plate’s displacement subject to a punctual variable load in cantilever arrangement.
