Possibilities of Ultrasonic Initiation of the Operation of TiNi Alloy Ring-Shaped Force Elements

  • 1 Accesses

Abstract—A technique of ultrasonic action on ring-shaped titanium nickelide samples, which stimulates the shape memory effect, is described. The possibility of ultrasound-induced operation of ring-shaped force elements is shown.
