The response of shape memory alloy composites

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

A microstructural model that couples the local and global effects is employed to analyse the behavior of composite materials with shape memory alloy fibers. Both metallic matrices and resin matrix composites with embedded shape memory alloy fibers are considered. Since shape memory alloys form fibers with large diameter, this model is particularly suitable for the analysis of this type of smart composite material where the coupling between the microstructural details and the macrostructure of the composite must be incorporated. Results are given that exhibit the response of composites with embedded shape memory alloy fibers in various circumstances.
