An incremental variational approach to coupled thermo-mechanical problems in anelastic solids. Application to shape-memory alloys

Abstract

We study the coupled thermo-mechanical problem that is obtained by com-bining generalized standard materials with Fourier's law for heat conduction. The analysis is conducted in the framework of non-smooth mechanics in order to account for possible constraints on the state variables. This allows models of damage and phase-transformation to be included in the analysis. In view of performing numerical simulations, an incremental thermo-mechanical prob-lem and corresponding variational principles are introduced. Conditions for existence of solutions to the incremental problem are discussed and compared with the isothermal case. The numerical implementation of the proposed ap-proach is studied in detail. In particular, it is shown that the incremental thermo-mechanical problem can be recast as a concave maximization prob-lem and ultimately amounts to solve a sequence of linear thermal problems and purely mechanical (i.e. at a prescribed temperature field) problems. Therefore, using the proposed approach, thermo-mechanical coupling can be implemented with low additional complexity compared to the isothermal case, while still relying on a sound mathematical framework. As an appli-cation, thermo-mechanical coupling in shape memory alloys is studied. The influence of the loading strain-rate on the phase transformation and on the overall stress-strain response is investigated, as well as the influence of the thermal boundary conditions.
