Chad Landis, Professor, University of Texas at Austin, Department of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics and Institute for Computational Engineering and Science

I will present recent work on the modeling of the structural response of shape memory alloy tubes, bars, and beams. We have developed a new constitutive model that captures pseudoelastic transformation induced recoverable deformation in SMAs including the strong asymmetries in the tensile and compressive responses....
