Paper Abstract

A preliminary investigation was made to study the possibility of training the newly developed TiNi-Pd high temperature shape memory alloys to posses the two-way memory effect, and characterize the various factors that affect the magnitude of the two-way memory effect. The experimental results show that all the newly developed alloys can demonstrate the two-way memory effect, even though the transformation temperature of the alloy reaches 280 degree(s)C. The permanent strain and phase transformation temperature are two important parameters to determine the magnitude of the two-way memory effect.
