Abstract

The aim of the present paper is to examine both the fatigue behaviour and the phase transition mechanisms of an equiatomicpseudo-elastic NiTi Shape Memory Alloy through cyclic tests (up to 100 loading cycles). More precisely, miniaturised dog-bone specimensare tested by using a customised testing machine and the contents of both austenite and martensite phase are experimentally measuredby means of X-Ray diffraction (XRD) analyses. On the basis of such experimental results in terms of martensite content, an analyticalmodel is here formulated to correlate the stress-strain relationship to the phase transition mechanisms. Finally, a validation of the presentmodel by means of experimental data pertaining the stress-strain relationship is performed.
