Applications of the shape memory alloys (SMAs) are based mainly on their unusual deformational properties, caused by the structural phase transformation of martensitic type. That is why a special attention is paid in the literature to the achievement of a giant deformation of the ferromagnetic SMAs under a moderate magnetic field or under mechanical load in both the ferromagnetic and nonmagnetic SMAs. This task has both the technological and physical aspects. In the present chapter, the physical aspects of the giant deformation of SMAs are analyzed focusing on the following issues: (1) the reduction of a magnetic field needed for the creation of a giant magnetically induced deformation, (2) lowering of hysteresis of the deformation processes in the ferromagnetic and nonmagnetic SMAs, and (3) an improvement of the fatigue properties of SMAs subjected to a cyclic deformation. The relevant physical problems such as an influence of the crystal defects and volume magnetostriction on the martensitic phase transformation and elastic properties of the ferromagnetic SMA are considered.
