Abstract:High transformation temperature shape-memory alloys (HTSMA) usually present a martensitic transformation temperature (Ms) starting at 100 ºC. That is the case of high nickel Ni-Ti-Hf alloys. This article presents experimental results obtained from arc melting of Ni 50 Ti 50-X Hf X .at% (X = 8, 11, 14, 17 and 20 .at%) alloys. This process homogenized every composition with similar relative crystallinity. Results confirm that transformation temperatures (TT) increase with increasing the amount of Hf. A martensit… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
