Based on the ZM model for shape memory alloys, an analytical model is derived for a functionally graded material (FGM)/shape memory alloy (SMA) laminated composite cantilever beam subjected to concentrated force at the tip. The beam consists of a SMA core layer bonded to identical FGM layers on both sides. The FGM layer is considered to be elastic with an equivalent Young’s modulus related to those of the constituents by means of a power law. Phase transformation within the SMA layer is accounted for in deriving the analytical relations, which are validated against finite element analysis results.
