The effect of the size of austenite grains on the temperature of the beginning of martensitic transformation during cooling, on the amount of the α-phase, and on the value of the critical field that causes the appearance of the first portions of martensite is studied for the case of treatment of iron-nickel alloys in a magnetic field.
