Elemental blends of Ti-Ni powder in the Ti50Ni50 ratio were tested by the conventional press and sintered method. The sintering conditions employed were based on solid-state diffusion which resulted in a homogeneous alloy exhibiting the shape-memory effect. An attempt has been made to establish a mathematical model to predict the time required for complete homogenization. The comparison of the calculated values with that of the experimental results revealed consistency.
