This investigation deals with the production and testing of 11 modified Nitinol alloys. Corrosion properties, mechanical properties, processing parameters, and microstructural characteristics have been determined as the function of alloy type. Results indicate that substitutional additions of Mo, Fe, and Cr are beneficial in preventing localized crevice corrosion. Further studies are being undertaken to determine long-term corrosion behavior of alloys produced as well as to broaden the data base describing the effects of the level of alloy content.
