Abstract

The influence of hydrostatic pressure on the martensitic transition in a Cu-22at%Zn-12at%Al-1at%Mn alloy was measured using an optical dilatometer. The volume change of the phase transformation was practically equal to zero. The pressure dependence of the elastic and dissipative energy of both transformations was separated and analyzed. The pressure dependence of Ms, Mf as well as the As, and Af temperatures were interpreted to develop a proposal for the selection of the elastic and dissipative energy terms.
