The change of the rate and damping of ultrasonic vibrations in low-temperature titanium nickelide alloys during phase transitions in the material initial state and after the impact of high intensive dynamic loading has been studied. It has been established that the differences in dynamics of acoustic and elastic property changes correspond to phase transitions of different types. The influence of dynamic loading in elasto-plastic strain intervals causes the increase of the scale of the given below acousto-elastic anomalies that is progressing with thé growth of load intensity: increase of elastic modulus defect and buildup of attenuation factor of acoustic waves in temperature intervals of phase transitions. The physical nature of acousto-elastic effects of titanium nickelide structural transformations has been discussed.
