Uniaxial Loading of Shape Memory Alloy

Application ID: 54871


These studies are a compilation of the examples in the text book

Shape Memory Alloys: Modeling and Engineering Applications. D. Lagoudas Ed. Springer 2008.

They show the properties of a NiTi alloy block subjected to uniaxial tension-compression loading.

The first parametric study displays the pseudoelasticity effect at different temperatures. In the second study a partial loading-unloading cycle is added. Finally, a third study shows the shape memory effect in a low-temperature loading cycle followed by a temperature increase.

This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
