Thermally induced shape-memory effects (SME) of polymers are quantified by cyclic thermomechanical tests. These data sets serve as basis to understand SMEs and to create appropriate modeling descriptions. Here, characterization methods for dual-, triple-, and multi-shape polymers as well as materials that exhibit a temperature-memory effect are reviewed together with recently developed thermomechanical modeling approaches to simulate such experiments.
