Abstract: Phase transformation in shape-memory alloys is known to cause electric resistivity variation that, under electric current, may conversely influence Joule heat production and thus eventually the martensitic transformation itself. A thermodynamically consistent general continuum-mechanical model at large strains is presented. In special cases, a proof of the existence of a weak solution is outlined, using a semidiscretization in time.
