Shape memory polymers find applications in aerospace [1], textiles [2] and largely in medical devices [3]. For computer assisted application design, it is critical to have at the engineer's disposal a mechanical behavior law that is easy to implement in finite elements code and that represents well the material behavior with respect to time and temperature. Shape memory modeling efforts can be classified in two categories: the models based on a bi-phasic representation of the material, proposed by [4] and adopted by [5] among others, and the thermoviscoelastic approach early introduced by [6] and improved by [7] among others.
