The Rubberlike Behavior in Cu-Zn-Al Martensite Single Crystals
The answer to the shape memory effect lies in successfully explaining the mechanical behavior of martensite. As a first step, the mechanical behavior of β’-martensite single crystals of different orientations and under different stress conditions should be analysed. During the course of this work a rubberlike effect has been observed within the martensitic structure of a CuZn based alloy. To the authors’ knowledge it is the first time that such a behavior has been reported in copper-zinc based alloys.
