Two methods are used in this work to estimate the porous shape memory alloy (SMA) thermomechanical behavior. The porous SMA is assumed to be made of two components, the dense shape memory alloy matrix and the pores. An existing rate-independent type constitutive model is employed to describe the matrix behavior. Two contrasting strategies are used to estimate the overall thermomechanical behavior: 1) the unit cell finite element method (UCFEM) to account for periodic distribution of pores in… CONTINUE READING
