Structural Transition of Stabilized Martensite in CuZnAl Alloy
The martensite stabilization in Cu72Zn13Al15 (at %) alloy on heating at a heating rate of 5°C/min has been studied. During heating, the transition of the lattice parameters of the stabilized martensite is that lattice parameters a and c increase, b decreases and monoclinic angle β tends to 90º, the abnormal re-relief and RSME take place. These phenomena in the alloy during heating are irreversible and do not change upon air-cooling.
