2 NiTiNOL Nickel Titanium Naval Ordnance Laboratory
55 wt % Ni; 45 wt % Ti Shape Memory & Super Elastic Material Unique phase transformation between Austenite and Martensite phases Biocompatible  Widely used in medical applications Homer Mammalok biopsy marker Medical Instruments Nitinol eyeglass frames Discovered at the Naval Ordnance Laboratory in the early 1960s Putter with Nitinol Inset Images taken from

3 Hysteresis Steel Unloading Curve for Steel Parallels Elastic Modulus
Nitinol Unloading Curve for Nitinol Follows Hysteretic Curve Loading   Unloading Nitinol experiences little to no permanent deformation Steel is permanently deformed

4 Hysteresis / Biocompatibility
Hysteresis shown by Nitinol is more similar to biological materials than steel

5 Stress-Strain Curve Elastic Limit for Steel = 0.3%
Elastic limit for Nitinol = 8% Steel Linear Elastic Super Elastic Plastic Deformation Nitinol NiTiNOL contains greater wt% Ni, but strong Ni-Ti bonds make Nitinol more chemically stable than steel. 0.3% 8.0%

6 Super Elasticity Occurs when mechanically deformed above its Af (Austenite Finish Temperature) Deformation causes stress-induced phase transformation to Martensite Martensite is unstable at this temp, therefore when stress is removed will spring back to austenite phase in pre-stressed position Stress-Induced Phase Transformation Deformed Martensite Austenite Unstable!

7 Nitinol Phases Temperature
Deformed Martensite Austenite Temperature Af = Temp at which transition to Austenite Finishes Ms = Temp at which transition to Martensite Starts Temp at which transition = As to Austenite Starts Austenite = rigid and superelastic; Martensite = soft and easily deformable. Temp at which transition = Mf to Martensite Finishes Martensite 100 % Austenite

8 Shape Memory Temperature Deformation Austenite Martensite
Material shaped at high temperature Above Af, material will always spring back to original shape after being deformed (Superelasticity) Austenite Temperature When heated above Af, returns to austentite phase and pre-deformed original shape. Material transitions to Martensitic Phase upon Cooling Af As Ms Mf Material is deformed in martensitic phase Martensite Deformation

9 Shape Memory & Super Elasticity
Austenite Temperature Shape Memory Af As Ms Mf Martensite Deformation

10 Transition Temperatures
What are typical Af values? Temperature Available -25°C to 120°C Dependant on alloy composition, mechanical treatment and heatworking Must be lower than body temperature for biomedical products Af As Ms Mf Deformation

11 Transition Temperatures
How large is this gap? Temperature Typically 30-40°C Manipulated by alloying NiTi + Copper  15°C height NiTi + Niobium  120°C height Af As Ms Mf Deformation

12 Effect of Temperature Stress-Strain Curve is dependent on Af temperature Super Elasticity Stress Temp Shape Memory Af Strain

13 Corrosion Resistant Properties
Oxidizes to form TiO2 layer on surface at high temperatures in air Electroplating reduces Ni in surface and creates TiO2 Less corrosive and more chemically stable than steel Surface similar to that of pure Ti O2 Ni TiO2 Surface Layer NiTi

14 Fatigue Orders of magnitude greater resistance than any other linearly elastic material. Typical limit at 107 cycles = .5% in outer fiber strain bending fatigue Increasing mean strain (up to 4%) extends fatigue endurance Mean strains above 4% follow strain-based Goodman Relationship Increasing temperature decreases fatigue life Due to increase in plateau stress Affected by surface finish, but not melting technique Info from:
