Topic: Shape memory alloy material

Dear Colleagues,

I am new in using ATENA and I am working in flexural behavior of RC beam strengthened using shape memory alloy (SMA) bars.
My question is Can I model the shape memory alloy bar in ATENA software. the shape memory alloy material is a super-elastic material.


Re: Shape memory alloy material

Dear abouferass88,
some users are modelling reinforcement using such alloys. I remember one of them creating a User Material DLL with a specific material law. If you have some specific questions, you can follow ATENA Troubleshooting, 2.1.1 to contact us. If you are interested in contact with the user, we can send him your email such that you can discuss if he has the time&mood to share some expirence.
