Paper Abstract

Paper presents preliminary findings on porting the Mueller-Achenbach-Seelecke model for the constitutive behavior of shape memory alloys into the finite-element-program ABAQUS. Means to doublecheck the current status of the implementation are traced out and the need for thermomechanical coupling in modeling shape memory alloys is demonstrated.
