  • Shape memory alloys, phase transitions, state constraints, optimality conditions




We consider two optimal control problems for first order martensitic phase transitions in a deformation-driven experiment on shape memory alloys including state constraints for the total stress and the temperature. We control by the elongation of a thin rod and by the outside temperature. The control problems are stated, and the necessary conditions of optimality are derived.
