    The unusual properties of shape memory alloys (SMAs) result from a lattice level martensitic transformation (MT) corresponding to an instability of the SMAs crystal structure. Currently, there exists a shortage of material models that can capture the details of lattice level MTs occurring in...

    In this article, the effect of aging on martensitic transformation of TiNiV alloy was investigated. The results show that the martensitic transformation of the solution-treated shape memory alloy is a typical single-stage transformation process. The transformation temperatures of the samples...

    The main goal of this work is to describe the thermomechanical behavior of a polycrystalline shape memory alloy (SMA), and more particularly the one associated with martensitic transformations. The numerical simulation of this behavior will make it possible to determine the response to a given...
