Shape memory alloy (SMA) has various application fields due to its shape memory effect and super elasticity. It can also be embedded into other material to produce SMA reinforced composite (SMAC). SMAC is a good candidate to realize structural smart control. In this paper the mechanical properties of SMAC in the plane stress state is investigated based on the theory of mechanics of composite material and the constitutive model expressing the thermo-mechanical behaviors of SMA.
