Article Preview

This paper focuses on the modeling of the cyclic super-elastic behaviors of SMA. Cyclic tensile experiments are performed on the NiTi SMA to test its cyclic super-elastic behaviors. A material parameter evolution equation is supposed to express the cyclic effects on the material parameters of the SMA. A cyclic constitutive equation is developed to describe the stress-strain relationship of the SMA under cyclic load. Numerical results show that the cyclic constitutive model, which includes the material parameter evolution equation and cyclic constitutive equation, well predicts the super-elastic behaviors of the SMA subjected to cyclic load.
