Abstract: This paper demonstrates, theoretically and experimentally, the feasibility of utilizing nickel-titanium alloy wires in altering the spring rates of a composite circular ring. Three-dimensional finite element analysis has been employed to study the transverse shearing effects. Reduction in spring stiffness at elevated temperatures can be prevented by inclusion of nickel-titanium alloy wire in the composite structure. The relationships between the spring stiffness at different temperatures and geometry were illustrated.
