Elastocaloric Effect in a Rapidly Quenched Ti2NiCu Alloy at a Periodic Action of a Stretching Force at Frequencies to 50 Hz
The elastocaloric effect (ECE) is studied in samples of rapidly quenched ribbons of a Ti2NiCu alloy at a periodic action by a mechanical stress to 300 MPa at a frequency to 50 Hz. ECE is maximal near
Potential improvement for elastocaloric performances of shape memory alloys through comparing with natural rubber
The elastocaloric (eC) effects of natural rubber (NR) and shape memory alloys (SMAs) are compared and potential improvement for eC performances of SMAs is proposed. Both the plateau and hysteresis of
Thermoelastic Properties and Elastocaloric Effect in Rapidly Quenched Ribbons of Ti2NiCu Alloy in the Amorphous and Crystalline State
The thermoelastic properties and the elastocaloric effect (ECE) were studied in rapidly quenched ribbons of the Ti2NiCu alloy samples in amorphous and crystalline states under periodic mechanical
Temperature-Dependence of Rubber Hyperelasticity Based on the Eight-Chain Model
An explicit temperature-dependent constitutive model was developed based on the Arruda-Boyce model to describe the stress–strain response of filled rubber in a relatively large temperature range and it was proved that the model can predict the effect of temperature on the hyperelastic behavior offilled rubber.
Effect of protein on the thermogenesis performance of natural rubber matrix
It is found that when the protein is almost removed, the heat generated by the vulcanized rubber increases rapidly, and after adding soy protein isolate to the secondary purification rubber, theHeat generation of the vulCANized rubber is reduced, and the heat generation is the lowest when the added amount is low.
Elastocaloric effect in amorphous polymer networks undergoing mechanotropic phase transitions
Deformations of amorphous polymer networks prepared with significant concentrations of liquid crystalline mesogens have been recently reported to undergo mechanotropic phase transitions. Here, we

A constitutive model based on a micromechanism inspired molecular chain approach is formulated within the context of the thermodynamic framework to provide a quantitative prediction of the stretch-induced crystallization in natural rubber.
Torsional refrigeration by twisted, coiled, and supercoiled fibers
It is shown that high cooling results from twist changes for twisted, coiled, or supercoiled fibers, including those of natural rubber, nickel titanium, and polyethylene fishing line, are shown.
Elastocaloric Cooling: State-of-the-art and Future Challenges in Designing Regenerative Elastocaloric Devices
The elastocaloric cooling, utilizing latent heat associated with martensitic transformation in shape-memory alloys, is being considered in the recent years as one of the most promising alternatives


Elastocaloric effect associated with the martensitic transition in shape-memory alloys.
The elastocaloric effect in the vicinity of the martensitic transition of a Cu-Zn-Al single crystal has been studied by inducing the transition by strain or stress measurements and the values agree with estimations based on the Clausius-Clapeyron equation.
Significant elastocaloric effect in a Fe-31.2Pd (at. %) single crystal
A significant elastocaloric effect was detected in a Fe-31.2Pd (at. %) single crystal when a compressive stress was applied in the [001]P direction of the parent phase at temperatures of 240-290 K.

A high-cycle test up to 1.7×105 cycles is successfully applied to the NR sample with very little degradation of eC properties, constituting an important step towards cooling applications.
Crystallization and melting of polyisoprene rubber under uniaxial deformation
The crystallization and the melting of vulcanized isoprene rubber under uniaxial deformation have been studied by the measurements of the stress−strain−temperature relation. The melting temperature
Elastocaloric effect of Ni-Ti wire for application in a cooling device
We report on the elastocaloric effect of a superelastic Ni-Ti wire to be used in a cooling device. Initially, each evaluated wire was subjected to 400 loading/unloading training cycles in order to
