The report presents a complete experimentalstudy of the pseudoelastic behavior of Ni-Ti shape memory alloys under shearload on a flat surface at ambient temperature under a wide range of strain rates(10-4-103/s). For Quasi-static loading (loading rate 10-4-10-2/s), opticalfull-field measurement is necessary, because at this time the totaldisplacement is very small, only 0.3mm. The experiment at an intermediateloading rate (10-1-101/s) can be done by using modified MTS machine which canload at a speed of 300mm/s. High-speed cameras are needed in the experiment. Atlast, the impact load rate (102-103/ s) was achieved by the split Hopkinsonrod. The experiment focuses on the use of methodology to explore the question:how to complete the experiment with today’s technology? From a mechanical perspective,a fixture system has been designed that can handle the correspondingexperimental requirements; from testing, a large number of optical cameras witha sampling rate of 500FPS have been massively adopted. Experts started toanalyze problems including unit size, uncertainty in texture, picture,luminance and DIC. In addition, infrared cameras are often used in low loadingrate experiment to prove the optical full field measured by DIC.

The nominal stress-strain curve and thedevelopment of transformed band through experiment over strain rates of 7orders of magnitude were obtained. The major results are: 1, stress increaseswith the increase of strain rate (strain rates of 7 orders of magnitude in thisexperiment) 2, the stress field is not balanced under a low strain rate (like10-4/s) in the in-plane shear; there is an obvious transformed band in30-degree shear direction. 3, two decoupled bands are observed at an impactstrain rate of 102/s, which indicates that local transformed band also hasrate-dependence.

All teachers and students are welcome!
