Plasticity and shape memory effects under martensitic transformations in titanium nickelide


It has been established that in titanium nickelide the rate of development of plastic deformation and, therefore, the effectiveness of the manifestation of the properties of shape memory and superplasticity depend on the mechanical properties of the material and the character and conditions under which the martensitic transformation occurs. The main condition for ensuring high memory parameters is a premartensitic instability of the lattice and the existence of a “softδ modulus at the moment of the transformation.
