Abstract
The experimental facts on the stabilisation of martensite in copper base shape memory alloys, of interest to the scientific investigator and the practical alloy processor and user are reported. Factors that have an influence on stabilisation are considered in this respect. The mechanisms proposed in the literature to explain stabilisation are critically examined.
