The evolution of recovery stress and recovery strain in an annealed NiTi thin wire during constrained thermal cycling to a temperature above its austenite finish temperature has been investigated. The results show that the recovery stress and recovery strain decrease significantly after the first cycle and reduce gradually further with increasing number of thermal cycles.
