Abstract

A novel analytical method, which predicts the extent of the stress-induced martensitic transformation (SIM) in the crack tip vicinity of nickel-titanium (NiTi)-based shape memory alloys, as well as describing the stress distribution in both transformed and untransformed regions, is presented. The method has been validated by comparisons with results from finite-element simulations with good agreement. Furthermore, the method has been used to analyze the effects of various thermomechanical parameters on the extent of the transformation region near the crack tip. Finally, the effects of several thermomechanical loading conditions, in terms of both applied stress and temperature, on the crack tip transformation behavior have been analyzed. The results highlight a marked effect of temperature on the extent of the transformation region and, consequently, on the crack tip stress distribution. As a consequence, temperature plays a role in the fracture process of NiTi alloys. (C) 2009 Acta Materialia Inc. Published by Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
