The main objective of this work has been the characterisation and correlation of the wear behaviour of the NiTi and CuZnAl shape memory alloys in their different phases. The weight losses for the different alloys in function of the present phase, and of the M transformation temperature are studied. Adhesive wear tests, Pin-on-Disk, according to the ASTM-G99 standard have been carried out.
