Solution Behavior of the Transient Heat Transfer Problem in Thermoelectric Shape Memory Alloy Actuators


The main purpose of this paper is to study the solution behavior of the transient heat transfer problem for one-dimensional symmetric thermoelectric shape memory alloy (SMA) actuators. It is proved that for the transient cooling problem with constant electric current density of magnitude |J | there is a value J0 of |J | such that when |J | < J0, the… (More)
