This terminology is a compilation of definitions of terms used in ASTM documents relating to nickel-titanium shape memory alloys used for medical devices. This terminology includes only those terms for which ASTM either has standards or which are used in ASTM standards for nickel-titanium shape memory alloys. It is not intended to be an all-inclusive list of terms related to shape memory alloys.
Definitions that are similar to those published by another standards body are identified with abbreviations of the name of that organization, for example, ICTAC is the International Confederation for Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry.
A definition is a single sentence with additional information included in a discussion. This standard is reviewed every five years, and the year of the last revision is appended.
