Paper Abstract

The physical basis of shape memory alloy (SMA) behavior is outlined and a general one-dimensional constitutive law is reviewed, which is incorporated into a finite element procedure. A demonstration of two applications is given: a SMA pipe connector and a composite beam with embedded SMA wires. Another example is concerned with the use of SMAs for active control of a magnetic mechanical spring system which is currently under investigation for vibration isolation purposes.
