Linear and non-linear internal friction and the effective Young’s modulus of a Ni50.8Ti49.2 alloy have been studied after different heat treatments, affecting hydrogen content, over wide ranges of temperatures (13–300 K) and strain amplitudes (10−7–10−4) at frequencies near 90 kHz. It has been shown that the contamination of the alloy by hydrogen strongly affects the internal friction and Young’s modulus of the martensitic phase. Presence of hydrogen gives rise to a non-relaxation internal friction maximum due to a competition of two different temperature-dependent processes. The temperature position and height of the maximum depend strongly on the hydrogen content. We conclude that many of the internal friction peaks, reported earlier for differently treated Ni-Ti-based alloys, had the same origin as the present maximum. View Full-Text
