A micromechanics inspired constitutive model for shape-memory alloys: the one-dimensional case


This paper presents a constitutive model for shape-memory alloys that builds on ideas generated from recent micromechanical studies of the underlying microstructure. The presentation here is in one dimension. It is applicable in a wide temperature range that covers both the shape-memory effect and superelasticity, is valid for a wide range of strain rates and incorporates plasticity. The thermodynamic setting of the model is explained and the model is demonstrated through examples.
