Experimental Methods for Investigation of Shape Memory Based Elastocaloric Cooling Processes and Model Validation Marvin Schmidt1,2, Johannes Ullrich2, André Wieczorek3, Jan Frenzel3, Gunther Eggeler3, Andreas Schütze1, Stefan Seelecke2 1Lab for Measurement Technology, Saarland University, 2Intelligent Material Systems Lab, Saarland University, 3Lab for Material Science, Ruhr Universität Bochum Experimental methods for investigation of solid state cooling processes and characterization of elastocaloric material properties of Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) are presented. A custom-built test rig has been designed for controlling and comprehensive monitoring of elastocaloric cooling processes. Furthermore, it provides a validation platform for thermomechanically coupled modeling approaches.
