CFDA Linked: Conservation Research and Development


The focus of this research program will be to prepare NiTi-based alloy materials with variable transformation temperatures. Characterization of the material will be conducted on the supplied alloys to further the understanding of the evolution of the transformation temperatures as a result of processing (heat treatments and composition). NiTiZr alloy strip that range from slightly Ni rich to slightly Ti rich will be supplied by University of Maryland from a metal supplier like ATI Specialty Alloys and Components. This research will impact the refrigeration industry with a more cost-effective and efficient thermoelastic material. To obtain this goal, UNT will perform the following tasks: (1) UNT will characterize as-received and processed NiTi-based alloy materials using a variety of characterization techniques, including differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and, if necessary, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) to determine transformation temperatures and microstructure, respectively. (2) UNT will section and heat treat ~10 inch long ~0.5 inch diameter rods NiTi-based alloy material samples.
