Study of electropulse heat treatment of cold worked NiTi wire: From uniform to localised tensile behaviour

Abstract

Electropulse heat treatment is a technique developed to realise fast heat treatment of NiTi shape memory alloys. This study investigates mechanical behaviour of cold worked NiTi wires heat treated with such a technique. It is demonstrated that milliseconds electropulses allow to realise homogeneous heat treatments and to adapt the mechanical behaviour of NiTi wires by controlling the electric energy. The material can be made elastic with different elastic modulus, perfectly superelastic with different stress plateau levels and superelastic with important local residual strain. Due to the short duration and high temperature of the heat treatment, this technique allows to obtain mechanical properties that cannot be obtained with classical heat treatments of several minutes in conventional furnaces such as linear evolution of the final loading and high tensile strength to 1500 MPa for superelastic material or increase of the stress plateau level with cycling for superelastic material.
