Abstract

Nitinol has received considerable attention for biomedical and aerospace applications due to its shape memory and superelastic properties. Shape memory and superelasticity are induced in Nitinol by transforming austenite into martensite. Austenite can transform to martensite by applying stress or heat. One promising method to initiate a stress induced phase transformation is ball burnishing. In this study, phase transformation of Nitinol (Ni 50.8Ti49.2) (at.%) by ball burnishing at various forces was investigated. Burnishing tracks were characterized and microstructures in the subsurface were investigated. Also, a corresponding burnishing simulation was performed to gain insight into the phase transformation mechanism of Nitinol by burnishing.
