Entropy Change during Martensitic Transformation in Ni50-xCoxMn50-yAly Metamagnetic Shape Memory Alloys

Abstract

Specific heat was systematically measured by the heat flow method in Ni50−xCoxMn50−yAly metamagnetic shape memory alloys near the martensitic transformation temperatures. Martensitic transformation and ferromagnetic–paramagnetic transition for the parent phase were directly observed via the specific heat measurements. On the basis of the experimental… (More)
