Deformation mechanisms in a TiNi shape memory alloy during cyclic loading

Abstract : The deformation mechanisms governing the cyclic stress-strain behaviour of a TiNi shape memory alloy were investigated in this work. To understand the development of these mechanisms during cyclic loading, three low-cycle fatigue tests were performed and stopped at different stages. The first test was stopped after the first cycle; the second one was stopped after 40 cycles, corresponding to the beginning of the stabilisation of the cyclic strain-stress behaviour; and the last one was carried out to failure (3324 cycles). Submitted to fatigue loading, the response of the TiNi shape memory alloy presents a classical pseudoelastic response. Two deformation mechanisms, identified by TEM observations, are highlighted, the first one by twins and the second by dislocation slip and its interaction with precipitates. These two mechanisms evolve without competition during cyclic loading. The nanomechanical properties of the alloy were also examined, and the evolution of the microhardness or indentation modulus was monitored.
