Studies on Dynamics of Interfaces in Cu-Ai-Zn-Ni Alloy


An internal friction peak associated with the viscous motion of interfaces was measured in the 50–150kHz range for the Cu-Al-Zn-Ni sample. The internal friction formula based on the viscous motion of interfaces has been derived. Also, corresponding parameters, which play an important role in shape memory effect such as viscosity coefficient, pinned force constant etc., were obtained.
