Mechanical Behaviour and Phase Transition Mechanisms of a Shape Memory Alloy by Means of a Novel Analytical Model
Acta Mechanica et Automatica
The aim of the present paper is to examine both the fatigue behaviour and the phase transition mechanisms of an equiatomic pseudo-elastic NiTi Shape Memory Alloy through cyclic tests (up to 100 loading cycles). More precisely, miniaturised dog-bone specimens are tested by using a customised testing machine and the contents of both austenite and martensite phase are experimentally measured by means of X-Ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. On the basis of such experimental results in terms ofdoi:10.2478/ama-2018-0017 fatcat:wjksjdkkknbdpkhcl2kdsegipq
