are compared with the experimental results. In these test results the shape memory alloys behavior as: super elasticity under various temperatures, loading rate effects, asymmetry in tension and pressure, various loops of loading and unloading, hydrostatic pressure effects, different proportional tension-shear biaxial loading and unloading, and also deviation from normality due to non-proportional tension-shear biaxial loading and unloading, are investigated and presented. The interesting well accuracy of results proves the strength and capability of the proposed model
