Abstract: In this work a generalized dynamical theory of thermoelasticity is formulated using a form of the heat transport equation which includes the time needed for acceleration of the heat flow. The theory takes into account the coupling effect between temperature and strain rate, but the resulting coupled equations are both hyperbolic. Thus, the paradox of an infinite velocity of propagation, inherent in the existing coupled theory of thermoelasticity, is eliminated. A solution is obtained using the generalized theory which compares favourably with a known solution obtained using the conventional coupled theory.
Abstract: A unified treatment is presented of thermoelasticity by application and further developments of the methods of irreversible thermodynamics. The concept of generalized free energy introduced in a previous publication plays the role of a ``thermoelastic potential'' and is used along with a new definition of the dissipation function in terms of the time derivative of an entropy displacement. The general laws of thermoelasticity are formulated in a variational form along with a minimum entropy production principle. This leads to equations of the Lagrangian type, and the concept of thermal force is introduced by means of a virtual work definition. Heat conduction problems can then be formulated by the methods of matrix algebra and mechanics. This also leads to the very general property that the entropy density obeys a diffusion‐type law. General solutions of the equations of thermoelasticity are also given using the Papkovitch‐Boussinesq potentials. Examples are presented and it is shown how the generalized coordinate method may be used to calculate the thermoelastic internal damping of elastic bodies.
Abstract: In some alloys, a given plastic strain recovers completely when the con cerned alloy is heated above a certain temperature. This phenomenon, shape memory effect (SME), was observed in Au-Cd (1) and In-Tl (2) alloys in the first half of 1950s. However, SME was not a focus of research until it was found in a Ti-Ni alloy (3) in 1963, when the phenomenon was first termed the shape memory effect. A similar phenomenon was found in a Cu-AI-Ni alloy as well (3a). At that time, however, SME was considered to be a peculiar phenomenon limited to the specific Ti-Ni alloy. In 1970, Otsuka & Shimizu (4, 4a) unambiguously demonstrated a one to-one correspondence between SME and the thermoelastic martensitic transformation in a Cu-AI-Ni alloy. Thus, they concluded that SME is characteristic of alloys exhibiting thermoelastic martensitic trans formations. They ascribed the origin to the crystallographic reversibility of the thermoelastic transformation and the presence of a recoverable deformation mode, i.e. twinning, in thermoelastic alloys. Since then, there
Abstract: This paper deals with thermoelastic material behavior without energy dissipation; it deals with both nonlinear and linear theories, although emphasis is placed on the latter. In particular, the linearized theory of thermoelasticity discussed possesses the following properties: (a) the heat flow, in contrast to that in classical thermoelasticity characterized by the Fourier law, does not involve energy dissipation; (b) a constitutive equation for an entropy flux vector is determined by the same potential function which also determines the stress; and (c) it permits the transmission of heat as thermal waves at finite speed. Also, a general uniqueness theorem is proved which is appropriate for linear thermoelasticity without energy dissipation.
Abstract: The use of the thermoelastic martensitic transformation and its reverse transformation has recently been proposed and demonstrated for several active control ap plications. However, the present constitutive models have lacked several important funda mental concepts that are essential for many of the proposed intelligent material system ap plications such as shape memory hybrid composites.A complete, unified, one-dimensional constitutive model of shape memory materials is developed and presented in this paper. The thermomechanical model formulation herein will investigate important material characteristics involved with the internal phase transformation of shape memory alloys. These characteristics include energy dissipation in the material that governs the damping behavior, stress-strain-temperature relations for pseudoelasticity, and the shape memory effect. Some numerical examples using the model are also presented.
