Advances in Ti-Based Systems as High Temperature Shape Memory Alloys


Article Preview

In this study, we investigate the effect of ternary addition on the structural, mechanical properties and temperature dependence of Ti-based as potential shape memory alloys using molecular dynamics approach. We found that binary Ti-Pt alloys exhibit shape memory properties and display possible martensitic transformation from B2 to B19 phases. Partial addition with Zr, Co, Pd, Ir showed preferential ternary high temperature shape memory alloys formation of 6.25 at. % X composition (Ti-Pt-X). We found that the equilibrium lattice constants are in better agreement with the available experimental values. The heats of formation and elastic properties reveal possible composition and phases at temperature above 900 K with good shape memory properties. Their structures were confirmed using the X-ray diffraction patterns at different temperatures.
