The authors report on the near-reversible strain hysteresis during thermal cycling of a polycrystalline NiTi shape memory alloy at a constant stress that is below the yield strength of the martensite. In situ neutron diffraction experiments are used to demonstrate that the strain hysteresis occurs due to a texture memory effect, where the martensite develops a texture when it is cooled under load from the austenite phase and is thereafter ''remembered.'' Further, the authors quantitatively relate the texture to the strain by developing a calculated strain-texture map or pole figure for the martensite phase, and indicate its applicability in other martensitic transformations.

Effects of thermomechanical processing on damping characteristics of martensitic Cu 13.5 w/o Al alloy for ship silencing application Kelly, Edward William (Monterey, California. Naval Postgraduate School, 1977-12);Cu-Al alloys demonstrate a high damping capacity in the martensitic state. The specific damping capacity in the y' martensite of a Cu-13.5w/o Al alloy was found to vary with grain size. Since platelet length increased ...
