Bending of shape-memory alloy-reinforced composite beam
- 185 Downloads
Based on the one-dimensional thermo-mechanical constitutive relation of a shape-memory alloy (SMA) in which the dependence of the elastic modulus of SMA upon the martensite fraction is considered, a constitutive relation for the bending of a composite beam with eccentrically embedded SMA wires has been developed. The deflection-temperature relation upon heating and cooling has been analysed for the SMA-reinforced composite beam.
