ASPECTS OF TWO WAY SHAPE MEMORY IN NiTi-SILICONE COMPOSITE MATERIALS

Abstract
The influence of a silicone layer on the two way effect (TWE) of an NiTi composite material is investigated. Stresses stored in the silicone during the heating process favour the reverse shape change during the cooling process. An improvement of the TWE compared with the plain metallic material is measured. The amount depends on different variables.
