Abstract

The macroscopic mechanical behaviour (stress-strain-temperature relations in tension, compression and internal friction) associated with pseudoelasticity and the memory effects is extensively reviewed. The particular features of the tension and compression curves (the stress to induce or reorient the martensite, total elongation, reversibility and hysteresis) are analysed and their dependence on temperature and crystal orientation is discussed.
