Experimental investigation of buckling stability of superelastic Ni-Ti tubes under cyclic compressive loading: Towards defining functionally stable tubes for elastocaloric cooling

  Within the ERC project SUPERCOOL we have investigated buckling stability of elastocaloric tubes and define the buckling phase diagrams, based on which functionally stable tubes to be used in elastocaloric devices can be selected. The results are published in International Journal of Solid and Structures.The paper is available here Read more…
