A constitutive theory, which consists of the constitutive equation and the transformation kinetics, is proposed to describe the thermomechanical behaviors of the shape memory alloys. Simulation in Ti-Ni alloy proves a good applicability of the theory when the overall characteristics of the stress-strain-temperature relation and the recovery stress induced in the heating process are studied in the uniaxial state.
