6.6. Conclusions

The research on constitutive models for SMA and effective numerical procedures for the analysis of plate and laminate composite materials embedding SMA components is an active research field in engineering and material science. The target of this research is the development of efficient and reliable numerical tools for the analysis and the design of innovative complex mechanical and biomedical devices.
The present chapter focused on some recent developments in the aforementioned research branch; in particular, three-dimensional phenomenological constitutive models for SMA, capable of reproducing the PE and the SME both in the small strain and finite strain framework, have been presented together with innovative plate/shell finite ...
