Solid State Physics


The shape memory effect (SME) has been investigated in alloys of the V-H system at concentrations in the range 0.2–0.5 H/V. It is shown that SME occurs over the entire H/V range indicated, but the magnitude of the stresses, the reversibility of the deformation during heating, as well as the magnitude of the thermal hysteresis depend essentially on the hydrogen concentration. The conclusion is drawn that the transformation in this system is of a martensitic character.
