Paper Abstract

The thermomechanical properties of shape memory effect and superelasticity due to the martensitic transformation and the R-phase transformation of TiNi shape memory alloy were investigated experimentally. The transformation line, recovery stress and fatigue property due to both transformations were discussed for cyclic deformation. The thermomechanical properties due to the R-phase transformation were excellent for deformation with high cycles.
