Advances in smart materials and structures technology, especially in applications of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) as actuators and vibration isolation devices require understanding of the nonlinear hysteretic response found in SMAs. SMA hysteresis can be modeled either through constitutive models based on physical material parameters or through models based on system identification. In this work, a simplified material model for the pseudoelastic response of SMAs is presented, suitable for vibration isolation applications. Response obtained from the simplified model is compared with the response obtained from an existing thermodynamic constitutive SMA model and the results from the two models are found to match well. The computation time required by the simplified model was approximately seven times faster compared with the thermodynamic constitutive model. The simplified model is utilized to simulate a single degree of freedom mass-SMA system where the SMA acts as a passive vibration isolation device, showing a substantial reduction in displacement transmissibility.
