A note on constrained shape memory alloys upon thermal cycling

  • G. H. Pan

In this paper, we present a systematical study on the constrained shape memory alloys upon thermal cycling. The focuses are the transformation temperature interval and hysteresis. Closed-form expressions are obtained for biased actuators and thin films atop an elastic substrate.
