Abstract : Modified beta-brass alloys are tested at various temperatures to investigate the pseudoelastic and memory properties of the alloys. The effects of thermomechanical cycling, and prestrain of the beta-brass alloys are determined. A stress-strain relationship for the alloys at various test temperatures is developed. (Author)
