Summary

In this paper we describe the new PM processing route to obtain Cu-Al-Ni SMA with fine grain size that we have introduced in previous works [11, 12]. Nevertheless, this method still presents some problems concerning the difficulty to match the desired chemical composition of the alloy, and the impossibility of compacting the whole powder particle size distribution. This is why we have also added a new step in the PM method consisting on the previous mechanical alloying (MA) of the powders [13].
