Abstract

The incomplete transformations of near equiatomic TiNi shape memory alloys were investigated by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC). The results showed that the incomplete transformation can induce multistage phase transformation in a sample showing R-phase transformation, when the turn back temperature located in a value between Rf and Ms, the heat flow detected upon following heating only shows one endothermic peak. With decreasing the turn back temperature to a temperature between Ms and Mf, two endothermic peaks (multistage phase transformation) can be observed upon the following heating. There were no incomplete transformation induced multistage phase transformations in a sample without R-phase transformation.
