Experimental Studies on the Superelastic Properties of SMA Material
A kind of SMA material with the chemical composition of Ti-51% at Ni (made in china) which is austenitic at room temperature is tested to find out the influences of adding/unloading frequency, loading amplitude and adding/unloading cycles on the superelasitc properties of it. Then the conclusions were made according to the experimental results given in the paper. Finally, some suggestions to improve the performance of the SMA material were offered.
