The compressive creep behavior of nickel-rich B2-NiTi (with 50-140 μm grain size) was studied over the stress range 3-11 MPa and the temperature range 950-1100 °C. The stress exponent (n = 2.7) and activation energy (Q = 155 kJ mol-1) are compared with a literature review of NiTi creep studies performed over lower temperature and/or higher stresses. Possible explanations for discrepancies between studies are discussed.
