The effect of training and predeformation on the martensitic transformation is investigated. It is concluded that MS as a function of predeformation strain must have a maximum at around 3% strain. Prestrains less than 5% will enhance the martensitic transformation whereas larger prestrains depress it due to strain hardening of the γ phase.
