Summary

The TiNi-based alloys in the group of metallic alloys with thermoelastic martensitic transformations (MT) are distinguished by a combination of attractive characteristics such as strength and plasticity, unique shape memory effect (SME), superelasticity, high reliability, endurance, weldability, corrosion resistance, biological compatibility [1–3]. Moreover, these alloys have relatively simple chemical compositions and technological stages of production. These circumstances ensure their wide and exclusive application as a functional material of new generation in fields like medicine [1–3] and others.
