Stability and uniqueness results for a numerical approximation of the thermomechanical phase transitions in shape memory alloys. (English) Zbl 0826.65108
Summary: We consider a numerical scheme for the approximate solution of a coupled system of nonlinear partial differential equations governing the dynamics of martensitic phase transitions in shape memory alloys. It is shown that the solution to the scheme depends continuously upon the data. This immediately yields the uniqueness of the solution to the scheme. Finally we report some numerical results for load-driven and temperature-driven experiments for the shape memory alloy \(\text{Au}_{23} \text{Cu}_{30} \text{Zn}_{47}\).
