    Abstract: Soil erosion is a major cause of land degradation worldwide, particularly in arid and semi-arid regions. In Morocco, soil loss is the most prevalent form of land degradation. The Srou river basin, located in the Middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco, has been greatly affected by soil erosion due to physical and human factors. The basin is characterized... Show More

    Abstract: Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) is a material that has the ability to memorize previous shapes after deforming. That is it regains its original shape when temperature increases, converting thermal energy to mechanical energy. This property of the plastic-like deformation which subsequently recovers its original shape is referred to as Shape Memory Effects... Show More
