Mechanical Behavior of Shape Memory Alloy Composites
Mechanical behavior of CFRP (Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer) containing Ni-Ti shape memory alloy (SMA) is investigated by experimental methods. Tensile and bending fracture tests were conducted to examine the strength of the composite for various volume fractions of the SMA. Charpy impact test was used to study the toughness of the SMA/CFRP hybrid composite. Finite element analysis was carried out for interface failure in bending test.
