Abstract
Abstract The Nitinol alloys are based on the intermetallic compound TiNi. Alloys on the nickel-rich side of stoichiometry contain a certain portion of the compound TiNi3 in equilibrium with TiNi and are hardenable. In other alloying variations some of the nickel is replaced with cobalt. When a near stoichiometric specimen is mechanically deformed below its martensitic transition temperature it retains this deformed shape indefinitely. Upon heating above its martensitic transition temperature, however, it rapidly reverts to the shape it had before deformation. Thus the material exhibits a “mechanical memory” effect. The martensitic transition temperature may be v...
