|Summary||Mechanical behavior of a unidirectional TiNi shape-memory alloy (SMA) fiber embedded composite is analyzed using a three-dimensional micromechanical method of cells and a SMA model for rhombohedral and martensitic transformations. The overall behavior of the TiNi-SMA composite is governed by the pseudoelastic response of the embedded TiNi-SMA fibers, and a pseudoelasticity-like hysteretic behavior appears in the stress-strain relationships under isothermal loading and unloading conditions. The shape and size of the hysteresis are significantly influenced by the volume fraction of TiNi-SMA fibers. For a high volume fraction of fibers, in particular, the rhombohedral transformation of the embedded TiNi-SMA characterizes the overall hysteretic behavior of the TiNi-SMA composite.
