STRUCTURE AND PROPERTIES OF NiTi ALLOYS AFTER TREATMENT BY THE POWERFUL ELECTRONIC IMPULSES WITH NANOSECOND LENGTHV. PRIEB
An der Fliehburg 19, D-4220 Dinslaken 1, Germany
The structural changes, kind of hysteresis loops and shape memory effect in the NiTi-specimens after their irradiation by the impulses electronic beams are investigated. A method for quantitative determination of reversible martensitic deformation under irradiation is proposed. The distribution of internal stresses inside the irradiated zone by means of this method with the use memory is described. Nonequilibrium appearance of structural defects under irradiation is discussed.
