Modeling of the Mechanical Behavior of Polycrystalline Shape-Memory Alloys by a Homogenization Method

균질화법에 의한 다결정 형상기억합금의 기계적 거동 모델링

  • Published : 2000.05.01


We obtain a micromechanics-based Helmholtz free energy and then in the framework of irreversible thermodynamics, a kinetic relation, a martensitic nucleation criterion and the reorientation criterion of martensitic variants are obtained. These relations are valid for a three-dimensional proportional and non-proportional loadings and for a combination of mechanical and thermal loading. From the simulated pseudoelastic stress-strain relation of a single crystal with loading rate effect, polycrystalline behavior in case of proportional and non-proportional loading is predicted by a homogenization method. The obtained results are compared quantitatively with experimental results.
