Studying phase transformation in a shape memory alloy with full-field measurement techniques
This paper deals with phase transformations that occur in a Cu-Al-Be single-crystal specimen of shape memory subjected to a tensile test. Two different techniques are used to experimentally evidence these phase transformations: the grid method to obtain strain maps and infrared thermography to deduce heat source distributions from temperature fields. Some typical strain and heat source maps obtained during the loading and unloading phases are discussed and interpreted.
