In this Journal of Materials Engineering and Performance paper published in February 2011, Alan Pelton reviews the fundamental principles of Nitinol fatigue from a microstructural perspective. Thermal and mechanical fatigue are discussed, with supporting data from DSC, TEM, and tensile testing illustrating mechanisms and and implications of fatigue in…Read more »
Presented at SMST-2010, and now published in the journal Biomaterials, Amanda Runciman and her collaborators present new studies on the multiaxial fatigue performance of Nitinol.
