Residual strain accumulation during thermal cycling of the Ti50Ni50 alloy under a constant stress of 200 MPa through the temperature range of complete and incomplete forward martensitic transformation was studied. The temperature range of the forward martensitic transformation during thermal cycling was chosen as 25, 50, 75, or 100% of the M (s)-M (f) interval measured in the first cycle. It was shown that intensive accumulation of residual strain took place in the last stage of the forward transformation. It was observed that resistivity increased more rapidly with an increase of the fraction of the temperature range of forward martensitic transformation.
