Paper Abstract

In this paper we present results on numerical studies of the martensitic-austenitic phase transition mechanism in a large shape-memory-alloy rod. Three groups of experiments are reported. They include results on stress- and temperature- induced phase transformations as well as the analysis of the hysteresis phenomenon. All computational experiments are presented for Cu-based structures.
