    Abstract

    Effects of aging and solution annealing treatment on the super elastic respond of the cold-worked Ni50.9%-Ti thin wire was studied in nano-scale utilizing instrumented nanoindentation. The nanoindentation results were coupled with the tensile test results to provide better insight to the governing deformation mechanisms. The first applied heat treatment heat treatment the cold-worked wire tensile test and nanoindentation results showed better super elastic behavior for the wire subjected to second treatment. Indentation displacement bursts were observed in loading course after both treatments. However, slope changes in unloading course of indents were recorded after second heat treatment which might be due to reverse phase transformation. Surface asperities on the post-indented surface after first treatment were observed far away from indentation stress field by atomic force microscopy.
