Abstract

Crackling noise and avalanches during the martensite phase transformation of Cu67.64Zn16.71Al15.65 were investigated. Heat flux measurements with extremely slow heating rates of 0.005 Kh−1 allowed sufficient separation between the continuous background and the avalanche jerks. The jerk enthalpy is below 3% of the total transformation enthalpy. The crackling noise follows power law behavior with an energy exponent near ɛ = 1.8. The jerks are almost uncorrelated with approximately a Poisson distribution of the waiting times between jerks. Quantitative analysis showed a scaling behavior with p(wt) ∼ wt(γ−1)exp(−wt/τ)n with γ = 0.7 and n ≈ 1.
