  • Energy conversion in shape memory alloy heat engine part I: theory 

    Zhu, Jiujiang; Liang, N. G.; Liew, K. M.; Huang, W. M. (SAGE Publications, 2001-02)
    Shape Memory Alloy (SMA) can be easily deformed to a new shape by applying a small external load at low temperature, and then recovers its original configuration upon heating. This unique shape memory phenomenon has inspired ...
  • Energy conversion in shape memory alloy heat engine part II: simulation 

    Zhu, Jiujiang; Liang, N. G.; Huang, W. M.; Liew, K. M. (SAGE Publications, 2001-02)
    In this paper, a theoretical model proposed in Part I (Zhu et al., 2001a) is used to simulate the behavior of a twin crank NiTi SMA spring based heat engine, which has been experimentally studied by Iwanaga et al. (1988). ...
  • Theory of phase transformation and reorientation in single crystalline shape memory alloys 

    Zhu, Jiujiang; Liang, N. G.; Cai, M.; Liew, K. M.; Huang, W. M. (Institute of Physics, 2008-02)
    A constitutive model, based on an (n+1)-phase mixture of the Mori–Tanaka average theory, has been developed for stress-induced martensitic transformation and reorientation in single crystalline shape memory alloys. Volume ...
