Abstract

The mechanical behaviour and shape memory effects were studied in the porous Ti-45.0 at. % Ni alloy produced by self-propagating high-temperature synthesis. It is shown that the porous Ti-45.0 at % Ni alloy is deformed by the same mechanisms as a cast Ti50Ni50 alloy. At low temperatures, the deformation of the porous alloy is realised via martensite reorientation at a low yield limit and by dislocation slip at a high yield limit. At high temperatures (in the austenite B2 phase) the porous Ti-45.0 at % Ni alloy is deformed by the stress-induced martensite at a low yield limit and by dislocation slip at a high yield limit. The pseudoelasticity effect is not found in this alloy, while the transformation plasticity and the shape memory effects are observed on cooling and heating under a constant load. The values of the transformation plasticity, and the shape memory effects, depend linearly on the stress acting on cooling and heating. The temperatures of the martensitic transformation increase linearly when the stress rises up to 80 MPa. The porous Ti-45.0 at % Ni alloy accumulates an irreversible strain on cooling and heating and demonstrates unstable functional behaviour during thermal cycling.
