It was intended that the alloy be thoroughly investigated for martensite transformation that would make the alloy "super-elastic," but due to the many difficulties that arose this was not possible. Attempts to grow a single crystal from the cast alloy were not successful because of the difficulties that were encountered with the Kanthal resistance furnace (referred to later). Consequently, the growing of the single crystal was abandoned and the alloy was tested in the poly-crystalline form.
