Micromechanical Modeling of Shape Memory Alloy Composites, pp. 371-423 $100.00
Authors:  Jacob Aboudi and Yuval Freed
This chapter reviews several approaches for the mathematical modeling of shape
memory alloys to be embedded as constituents (e.g. fibers) thus forming shape memory
alloy composites. To this end, shape memory alloy fibers that exhibit pseudoelasticity,
one and two-way shape memory effects, rate dependence and transformation
induced plasticity are considered. The behavior of the shape memory composites is
determined by employing a micromechanical analysis which is capable of predicting
the response of such composites that consist of polymer as well as metallic matrices.
Since the shape memory alloy fibers behavior is dominated by the temperature, this
micromechanical model accounts for the full thermomechanical coupling between the
fibers and matrix in which the mechanical and thermal effects mutually affect each
other. The micromechanical modeling is also applied to predict the behavior of shape
memory alloy honeycombs, which form a promising new type of smart materials. The
possibility of increasing the tensile strength of concrete by embedding activated shape
memory wires is investigated. This is carried out by a micromechanical modeling in
which both evolving damage effects as well as coupled damage-plasticity effects are
incorporated in the prestressed concrete.
