Paper Title:
Textural Evolution Evaluated by EBSD and XRD after Thermal Treatment in Ni-Ti Shape Memory Alloy
  Abstract

The Nickel-Titanium (Ni-Ti) alloys are the most attractive amongst shape memory alloys (SMA) due to their good functional properties coupled with high strength and good ductility. The transformation temperatures in Ni-Ti SMA can be altered by chemical composition and thermal and/or mechanical treatments adequate to obtain reversible martensitic transformation in one or more steps. The goal of the present work is to investigate the evolution of texture in Ni-Rich Ni-Ti (50.8at%Ni-Ti) SMA showing different phase transformation temperatures as a result of different thermal/mechanical history: straight-annealed (as-received condition) and subsequent thermal treatment at 500°C for 30 minutes in air. The microstructural and textural results were obtained by Electron Backscattering Diffraction on Scanning Electronic Microscopy (ESBD/SEM) and by X Ray Diffraction (XRD) at room temperature. Mechanical properties were measured by Vickers micro hardness tests at room temperature.
