Nitinol Steel Hysteresis Unloading Curve for Steel Parallels Elastic Modulus Unloading Curve for Nitinol Follows Hysteretic Curve Nitinol experiences little to no permanent deformation Steel is permanently deformed Loading Unloading Loading Unloading
Hysteresis / Biocompatibility Hysteresis shown by Nitinol is more similar to biological materials than steel
Stress-Strain Curve Elastic Limit for Steel = 0.3% Elastic limit for Nitinol = 8% Steel Nitinol 0.3%8.0% Linear Elastic Super Elastic Plastic Deformation NiTiNOL contains greater wt% Ni, but strong Ni-Ti bonds make Nitinol more chemically stable than steel.
Stress-Induced Phase Transformation Super Elasticity Occurs when mechanically deformed above its A f (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 Austenite Deformed Martensite Unstable!

Corrosion Resistant Properties Oxidizes to form TiO 2 layer on surface at high temperatures in air Electroplating reduces Ni in surface and creates TiO 2 Less corrosive and more chemically stable than steel Surface similar to that of pure Ti TiO 2 Surface Layer NiTi O2O2 Ni
Fatigue Orders of magnitude greater resistance than any other linearly elastic material. Typical limit at 10 7 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:
