AN EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE
SCIENTIFIC BACKGROUND
1932
A. Ölander discovered the pseudoelastic behavior of the Au-Cd alloy.
1938
Greninger & Mooradian observed phase changes by decreasing
and increasing the temperature of a Cu-Zn alloy.
1960
The U.S. Naval Ordnance Laboratory discovered a new
material that exhibited shape memory effect.
This alloy was named NiTiNOL
