In situ diffraction investigations of mechanisms that lead to path dependent mechanical behaviours of nickel-titanium shape memory alloys
Development and characterization of Shape Memory alloys (SMAs) has taken big steps over half a century in understanding the role of alloying components, processing of alloys and microstructural optimization to real life engineering application. This has aided in the growth of application of SMAs to multi-billion-dollar industry but the component design with SMAs still follows that traditional route of prototyping and laboratory testing. Implementation of numerical simulations would help in making component’s design-time more efficient and design-cycle cost effective, but few bottle necks are ...
