About Shape Memory Alloys

Among the commercially available Shape Memory Alloys, nickel–titanium (Ni–Ti and Ni–Ti based, also called "Nitinol") ones are outstanding due to their excellent performance and reliability.

Shape Memory Effect: "Shape Memory" describes the effect of restoring the original shape of a plastically deformed sample by heating it.

Superelastic Effect: An elastic (reversible) responses to an applied temperature, caused by a phase transformation between the austenitic and martensitic phases of a crystal.

MS: The starting temperature of SMA transform from austenite to martensite

MF: The ending temperature of SMA transform from austenite to martensite

AS: The starting temperature of SMA transform from martensite to austenite

AF: The ending temperature of SMA transform from martensite to austenite
