The Dynamic Impact Behaviors of NiTi Alloy
The contact force during impact of a NiTi alloy was studied in this paper. The contact force and contact time during impact between a spherical impactor and the specimen at different impact velocity and temperature were measured in real time. The maximum contact force and contact time of the NiTi alloy in the martensite state increased and decreased respectively with increasing temperature. The maximum contact force of the NiTi alloy in the parent phase state showed a plateau with increasing impact velocity of the impactor.
