Paper Abstract

The deformation of adaptive composite with active polydomain components has been calculated by finite element modeling (FEM). The average deformation, the distribution of stresses and the elastic energy of the composite as a function of different extent of twinning of the composite active component are calculated. Comparing the results of the FEM with the results of the analytical theory demonstrates the effect of the microstresses on the mechanics of the adaptive composite.
