This study deals with the static analysis of the effect of shape memory alloy
using finite element analysis on ansys software.In this paper, a simply supported
carbon/epoxy beam is considered.A point load of 10 KN is applied at the top layer of the
carbon/epoxy carbon/epoxy beam. The boundary condition is same for with and without
SMA wire. this research work involves analysis of the 1000mm length carbon/epoxy
carbon/epoxy beam. the shape memory alloy wire is used at the top surface above the
neutral axis of the carbon/epoxy beam. The shape memory alloy wire which is 10% by
volume fraction of the whole carbon/epoxy beam. After performing analysis we compare
both the result with SMA and without SMA wire. In this analysis we compare the maximum
deformation, Equivalent (von-misses) stress and strain. From the above result, we have seen
the effect of shape memory alloy wire on the carbon/epoxy beam. All the method which is
used to analysis the carbon/epoxy beam is controlled by ansys software.
