The paper presents an X ray diffraction study for a cooper based shape memory alloy. The behavior of CuAl13Ni4 alloy, which exhibits a peculiar property, is evaluated by structural changes. On cooling, the martensitic transformation takes place from the ordered structures to the long period two layered structure. The crystalline phase transformations of those alloys are very sensitive to the heat treatments, deformation degrees and also to the undesired aging effects. In particular, the study has been made on the CuAl13Ni4 shape memory alloy samples after being hot extruded, quenched and aged in martensitic state.
