Paper Abstract

The hysteresis between transformation to martensite and austenite in a SMA is discussed here as an intrinsic material property to be used to enhance damping. Initially the SMA constitutive modeling is described on a thermomechanical basis before considering the coupling of the SMA with a host structure targeting in the long term to a composite. The different parameters influencing damping with regard to the applied loads is discussed and conclusions are drawn with regard to how these parameters have to be set such that damping of a SMA-composite can be optimized.
