Fracture mechanics of pseudoelastic NiTi alloys: review of the research activities carried out at University of Calabria
Frattura ed Integrità Strutturale
This paper reports a brief review of the research activities on fracture mechanics of nickel-titanium based shape memory alloys carried out at University of Calabria. In fact, this class of metallic alloys show a unusual fracture response due to the reversible stress-induced and thermally phase transition mechanisms occurring in the crack tip region as a consequence of the highly localized stresses. The paper illustrates the main results concerning numerical, analytical and experimentaldoi:10.3221/igf-esis.23.02 fatcat:zmastfuys5ffvnigu6zpje5waq
