Review of Constitutive Equations for Shape Memory Alloys
The paper presents a review of existing shape memory alloy (SMA) constitutive theories. The most widely used theories utilize the rate constitutive law of Tanaka. The final form of this law can be chosen so that it reflects one or more experimentally evaluated sets of values of the state variables. The resulting semi-experimental constitutive law yields results that are a good agreement with experimental data.
