A theoretical study about the influence of crystalline orientation on the energy conversion efficiency of two shape memory alloys is present. The study consider single crystal samples in simple tension. The results showed higher properties for of the NiTi than Cu-Al-Be, especially in the temperature-increment (ΔT) necessary for get a conversion energy cycle. However, the study showed a crystalline orientation favorable for Cu-Al-Be.
