Coupling Infrared Thermography and Acoustic Emission Measurement to Quantify the Shakedown State of Shape Memory Alloys
This paper provides an original experimental characterization of the shakedown state of a shape memory alloy structure under cyclic pseudo-elastic loading. This analysis is performed through the observation of the dissipated energy at a macroscopic scale as well as the temperature on the surface of the sample through infrared thermography measurement. Morevover, a deeper study is led thanks to acoustic emission to quantify the shifts between microscopic evolutions at a lower scale. The main conclusion is that these 3 quantities are correlated and enable us to identify different stages the structure crosses until the shakedown state.
