I am trying to define the material properties of a shape memory alloy material in ANSYS APDL V15. There are material properties for Superelastic materials (SUPE option) and material properties for Shape memory effect materials (MEFF option) depending on the option taken. Even after taking the right option for shape memory effect, the data shown is not the right model.
My code for defining the material with the trigger is as follows:
/PREP7 MP,EX,2,47.2E9 MP,PRXY,2,0.33 TB,SMA,2,1,7,MEFF,, TBDATA,1,0,315.15,100E6,4.4E6,0.05,2.0E10 TBDATA,7,0
The output windows confirms that I took the memory effect option by saying:
DEFINE DATA TABLE SMA FOR MATERIAL 2 Shape Memory Alloys OPTION MEMORY EFFECT WITH A MAXIMUM OF 1 TEMPERATURES AND 7 DATA POINTS
However, the material model still displays the material constants as being "SIG-SAS, SIG-FAS, SIG-SSA, SIG-FSA, EPSILON, ALPHA" for a total of 6 constants. These correspond to the SUPE option.
Both the name and number of constants correspond to the Superelastic model and not the Shape memory effect, which I should have triggered using the MEFF option.
Why is this happening? How do I define this material using the constants for the Shape memory effect, rather than the constants for the Superelastic model?
