10-011 - Method for controlling phase transformation temperature in metal alloy of a device


John Gary Bledsoe, Berton Roy Moed, Dongfa Li


An efficient method to reduce product wastes due to inaccurate transformation temperatures for shape memory products and parts, which provides a useful method for optimizing shape memory alloys phase transformation temperatures and mechanical properties by using heat treatment procedures below 250 degrees C. for extended dwell times.
