Paper Title:
Dynamic Properties of NiTi Shape Memory Alloy and Classic Structural Materials: A Comparative Analysis
  Abstract

Shape Memory Alloys (SMA) are smart materials that have attracted increasing attention due to their superior damping properties when compared to conventional structural materials. These functional materials exhibit high damping capacity during phase transformation as well as in the low temperature martensitic state. In this work NiTi SMA, commercial aluminum, stainless steel and brass were submitted to dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) in a single cantilever mode. Small beam specimens were manufactured to accomplish the DMA tests. The studied NiTi presented a damping capacity peak during phase transformation, being much higher than damping of conventional materials. NiTi SMA also showed an increase of storage modulus after conversion of low temperature phase to high temperature phase while an almost linear decrease is observed for the conventional materials studied.
