Abstract One-way shape memory effect (OWSME) in NiTi springs has been investigated in this work. The main goal is the definition of a guide-line for the design of a linear actuator for high cycles duty. Some SMA and steel springs with various geometrical features have been produced from wires with different diameters. SMA spring's behavior has been analyzed measuring the maximum length (austenitic condition, T  >  A F – austenite finish) under different applied loads. The measurement of this length has been performed at successive thermomechanical complete working cycles (150, 5350, 43,000 and 600,000) under a constant applied load necessary to full recovery in ...
