This paper theoretically finds the different parameters of shape memory alloys via strain rate. Finite element formulation for temperature rate, and produced latent heat due to phase transition have been derived. Moreover, the equivalent viscous damp coefficient is provided. In addition, the Devonshire coefficient has been theoretically found by simplifications. This method helps to predict the heat and temperature change in quasi-static and dynamic studies in NiTi. Furthermore, they could be used in high nonlinear and low elastic deflection of NiTi. Then, the nonlinear vibration of smart composite involved with NiTi from any kind and percent of Ni and Ti could be handled by results.
