Paper Abstract

The fatigue of TiNiCu and CuZnAl thin wires has been investigated during stress assisted two way memory effects thermal cycles. The influences of the number of thermal cycles and of the applied stress have been measured, and Wohler type curves are plotted. The evolution of the high and low temperatures shapes during the thermal cycling is also compared for the two alloys.
