Shape Memory Alloys

Chapter
Part of the Lecture Notes of the Unione Matematica Italiana book series (UMILN, volume 13)

Abstract

Shape memory alloys are mixtures of many martensites and of austenite. The composition of the mixture varies: the martensites and the austenite transform into one another. These phase changes can be produced either by thermal actions or by mechanical actions. The striking properties of shape memory alloys result from interactions between mechanical and thermal actions [29, 136, 183].
