The transformation behavior of an embedded shape memory alloy (SMA) ribbon was investigated experimentally and numerically. Single SMA ribbons (55% Ni, 45% Ti) were pre-strained to 1% and then embedded in a room-temperature-cured epoxy resin. The embedded ribbons were heated resistively to a temperature above the austenite start temperature to induce transformation. The development of displacements and strains due to transformation were measured in situ using moiré interferometry. Analysis ofdoi:10.1088/0964-1726/9/5/315 fatcat:gpto7rtfk5fnnjurzhsomg6e3q
