Abstract

Effects of ruthenium (Ru) substitution on constituent phases, phase transformation temperatures and mechanical properties were investigated for Ti-Ni shape memory alloys. Ti50Ni50-X Ru X alloys with Ru contents (X) from 0mol% (binary TiNi) to 50mol% (binary TiRu) were systematically prepared by Ar arc-melting followed by hot-forging at temperatures from 1173K to 1673K depending on chemical composition. Phase stability was assessed by DSC (differential scanning calorimetry), XRD (X-ray diffractometry) and TEM (transmission electron microscopy). Mechanical properties were investigated using hardness and tensile tests at room temperature. With increasing Ru content, it was found that the lattice parameter of B2 phase increases, the martensitic transformation temperature slightly decreases, and the melting temperature increases monotonously. Besides, R-phase appears for Ti-Ni alloys containing 3mol% and 20mol%Ru but no diffusionless phase transformation is seen in Ti-Ni alloy containing 5mol%Ru. Vickers hardness shows the maximum at an intermediate composition (HV1030 at 30mol%Ru); this suggests that large solid solution hardening is caused by Ru substitution for the Ni-sites in TiNi.
