This presentation reports on work to create user friendly software to aid in automated data analysis of tests to characterize the shape memory response of alloys. This effort has developed and produced software capable of automated analysis of test data produced using standard test methods and variations of these methods. This software provides a uniform method for analyzing data, which reduces analysis time and reduces error/variation due to different user and organization analysis methods. The software will allow analyzed data to be reported in the ASTM format for material certification, or as compiled data that can be directly imported into the NASA Shape Memory Material Database.
