  abstract = {In this article, we develop a continuum mechanical model
		  to simulate deformation and phase transformation processes
		  in shape memory alloys. The model is based on a detailed
		  description of the stored energy. Furthermore, the energy
		  dissipation due to phase transformations is taken into
		  account via the maximum-dissipation principle. The results
		  from the 3D numerical simulations of stress induced
		  transformations from the cubic to the tetragonal phase and
		  martensitic variant reorientations in NiMnGa are compared
		  with laboratory experiments on NiMnGa [001]-oriented single
		  crystals. },
