Hi nrj0025,

Here is the SMA material reference:https://ansyshelp.ansys.com/account/secured?returnurl=/Views/Secured/corp/v201/en/ans_mat/smas.html?q=SMA

Can you please explain what alternating stress and mean stress is and why they are needed to define SMA? I don't recall an SMA material model need such information. Here are the inputs needed for Shape memory effect. If you are to model the superelasticity, then you need a different set of inputs.
