We present a micromechanical model for polycrystalline shape-memory alloys which is capable of reproducing important aspects of the material behavior such as pseudoelasticity, pseudoplasticity, tension�compression asymmetry and the influence of texture inhomogeneities which may occur from the production process of components or specimens. Our model is based on the optimization of the material�s free energy density and uses a dissipation ansatz which is homogeneous of first order. Considering the full anisotropic material properties of both the austenite and the martensite phase, we compute the evolution of the orientation distributions of austenite and martensite as internal variables of our model.

    While it is well known that magnetoelastic coupling governs the magnitude of field-induced strain in magnetic shape memory alloys, the present study shows that the zero-field micromagnetic structure and the pathway leading to the field-induced strain is governed by magnetostatic coupling across...

    Unusual magnetic anisotropy of the ferromagnetic shape-memory alloy Ni50Fe23Ga27 has been observed. The anisotropy of the austenite becomes very large, even larger than that of the martensite in ribbon samples. Lowering the temperature from 300 K to 80 K, the saturation field of the austenite is...

    The Ni44.1Mn44.2Sn11.7 ribbons were prepared by melt spinning. A single-phase austenite with L21 structure was confirmed in the melt-spun ribbons at room temperature. After the heat treatment, the martensitic transformation temperature increases obviously in the annealed ribbons. This method may...

    Jerky elasticity was observed by dynamical mechanical analyzer measurements in a single crystal of the shape memory alloy Cu74.08Al23.13Be2.79. Jerks appear as spikes in the dissipation of the elastic response function and relate to the formation of avalanches during the transformation between...
