WHAT DOES NITINOL MEAN IN ENGLISH?

nitinol

Nickel titanium

Nickel titanium, also known as nitinol, is a metal alloy of nickel and titanium, where the two elements are present in roughly equal atomic percentages e.g. Nitinol 55, Nitinol 60. Nitinol alloys exhibit two closely related and unique properties: shape memory and superelasticity. Shape memory is the ability of nitinol to undergo deformation at one temperature, then recover its original, undeformed shape upon heating above its "transformation temperature". Superelasticity occurs at a narrow temperature range just above its transformation temperature; in this case, no heating is necessary to cause the undeformed shape to recover, and the material exhibits enormous elasticity, some 10-30 times that of ordinary metal.

Definition of nitinol in the English dictionary

The definition of nitinol in the dictionary is a metal alloy of nickel or titanium that has shape memory, meaning it returns to its original shape upon reheating after being deformed.
