    Abstract

    Effect of intermittent overload cycles on fatigue behavior of NiTi shape memory alloy wire during thermomechanical cycling (TMC) has been evaluated. Results showed that fatigue life of NiTi is enhanced when the intermittent overload is above certain minimum level. An enhancement in fatigue life by ~50 pct is observed when the overload ratio is 2.0. Accumulation of plastic strain in the material under such TMC condition is found to be relatively high compared to that of TMC with no overload cycles.
