A Study of Shape Memory Effect Above Ms Temperature in a Cu-Zn Alloy Using the Twisting Deformation and Electric Resistance Methods

Part of the Review of Progress in Quantitative Nondestructive Evaluation book series


The shape memory effect (SME) is generally recognized to be caused by the reverse transformation of the deformed thermoelastic martensite (TEM); in a TiNi alloy, however, it has been reported that the SME is not related to the thermoelastic martensite but is caused by stress--induced martensite (SIM) [1]. The SME is mainly related to the R-phase transformation [2].
