5.1 Constant force thermal cycling tests determine the effect of stress on the transformation temperatures, recovered strain and residual strain of a shape memory alloy. The tests may be for one thermal cycle but may involve repeated thermal cycles with the number of cycles increasing by orders of magnitude 10 until the response of the material to thermal cycling no longer changes.View Less
1.1 This test method defines procedures for determining the transformation temperatures, the related strains and the residual strain when a shape memory alloy is thermally cycled under an applied axial stress. This test is done to provide data for the design and selection of shape memory alloy thermoelastic actuators.
1.2 Units-The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
