A model accounting for the microstructure of porous TiNi shape memory alloy samples fabricated by self-propagating high temperature synthesis has been proposed for simulation of their functional-mechanical properties. Structural elements of a porous sample have been approximated by curved beams. An analysis of shapes and sizes of pores and ligaments permitted to identify characteristic sizes of the beams. A mathematical object consisting of rigidly connected small curve beams has been considered. The stress-strain state of a beam was estimated by the classical methods of strength of materials. The microstructural model was used for calculation of the phase deformation of the shape memory material. Simulation of stress-strain curves and phase deformation of a porous TiNi sample on cooling and heating under a constant stress has shown a good correspondence between the experimental data and the results of modeling.
