The present activity in research into shape memory and related effects stems from the work of Buehler and his associates on TiNi and similar intermetallic compounds.1 This has been followed by detailed investigations of the noble metal b.c.c. beta phases which undergo a martensitic transformation to a faulted or twinned martensite on cooling. This has been reviewed thoroughly2,3 to which reviews reference should be made for further details.
