This talk reports the deformation instability and pattern evolution during stress-induced martensitic phase transformation in a superelastic NiTi polycrystalline shape memory alloy microtube. High-speed data and image acquisition techniques were used to investigate the dynamic as well as quasistatic events which took place during displacement controlled quasi-static tensile loading/unloading process of the tube. These events include dynamic formation, self-merging, topology transition, convoluted front motion and front instability of a macroscopic deformation band (domain). Nonlocal modeling and numerical simulations on the experimental phenomena are also reported briefly in the talk.
