|Abstract:||Aging-induced changes in the austenite peak (Aρ) temperature of Au7Cu5Al4 shape-memory alloy are investigated. Whereas heat treating the parent phase at temperatures >140°C or aging the martensite for long times at room temperature both stabilized the Aρ to ~80°C, low-temperature excursions into the parent phase caused the subsequent Aρ to drop to ~60°C and the transformation hysteresis to decrease. The evidence indicates that this destabilization of the martensite is caused by time-dependent relaxation of elastic constraint due to parent-phase lath migration during the preceding low-temperature austenitizing treatment. This mechanism of aging is different from that of the better-known symmetry-conforming short-range order phenomenon. © 2011, Elsevier Ltd.|
