Induction heating of a shape memory alloy beam★

Abstract : The shape memory alloy heating by eddy currents is a quick solution for the shape change. Then, the analysis of the temperature field as a function of the shape is important to build a mechanical model in large deformation. Even if the temperature can be obtained by experiment, a computational model is useful. The computation of the induced currents in a nickel–titanium shape memory alloy beam is here considered with a T − Ω model adapted to thin shells with the help of a change of coordinates. It allows us to take into account the shape change, without the need of remeshing, as a function of the temperature. Experiments are carried out to validate the model.
