Abstract: An experimental study was performed to investigate the effect of texture on stress-induced martensitic phase transformation in the shape memory alloy Nickel-Titanium (Nitinol). Thin sheet specimens of Nitinol were examined under uniaxial tensile loading using three-dimensional digital image correlation in order to spatially and temporally track strain localization indicative of martensitic transformation. Tensile specimens were fabricated along directions oriented 0° (RD), 45°, and 90° (TD) to the rolling dire…
