Title: Effect of Thermal Cycling on Martensitic Transformation Characteristics of (Ni47Ti44)100-xNbx Shape Memory Alloys

Abstract

(Ni47Ti44)100-xNbx (x=3, 9, 15, 20, 30at.%) shape memory alloys are prepared and their transformation temperatures and transformation latent heats under conditions of various thermal cycling times are systematically investigated by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC). It is found that the martensitic transformation behavior in the experimented alloys are strong influenced by the Nb-content and thermal cycling times. The results showed that the transformation temperatures of experimented alloys decreased with increase of the cycling number, and the lower the Nb-content in the (Ni47Ti44)100-xNbx alloy, the more the Ms temperature decreased. With increasing of the thermal cycling times, the martensitic transformation latent heats ( {delta} H B2{yields}B19' ) and the reverse transformation latent heats ({delta} H B19'{yields}B2) of (Ni47Ti44)100-xNbx alloys all linearly decrease, but the decrease amplitude is not high.
