In this work, we study the shape memory alloys (S.M.A) micromechanical behaviour of single and polycrystal in the perfect transformation plasticity using Taylor’s approach. This study is based on the kinematical description of the physical mechanisms at the origin of the phenomenon, and on the thermodynamical analysis of the irreversible processes presented by these alloys in such a transformation. The pseudoelastical behaviour of S.M.A is described by defining a pseudoelastical potential through the Gibbs theory, and by application of the second principle of the thermodynamic. We also put out the contribution of the variant’s reorientation mechanism to the micromechanical behaviour.
