Composite Materials/SMA hybrid composite

Question
Sir,
I want to study about the Shape memory alloy hybrid composites and its modelling in FEM. I want to know does your book "FEA of Composite materials using abaqus" covers something about it. If not please tell me from where to start.

Answer
You need to understand composites before you can do novel work on SMA composites.

http://barbero.cadec-online.com/icmd/index.html covers in great detail all the material, processing, and mechanics of materials aspects of composites without going into finite element analysis.

http://barbero.cadec-online.com/feacm-abaqus/index.html and
http://barbero.cadec-online.com/feacm-ansys/index.html cover advanced topics using finite element analysis.
