Abstract. The influence of the initial state of a bar of Ni49.9Ti50.1 shape memory alloy on the characteristics of thermoelastic martensitic transformation in microwires obtained by cold and warm drawing with a diameter of 100 μm was studied. It was demonstrated that the recoverable deformation for a wire from a bar after warm forging and annealed at 350 C was 12% at the load of 805 MPa (energy capacity was 96 MJ / m3), and in a wire from a bar processed by ECAP operation and warm forging annealed at 400˚ C recoverable deformation was 7.2% at 846 MPa (energy capacity was 61 MJ / m3). It was noted that increasing the annealing temperature to 450C and the exposure time to 45-60 minutes slightly increase the level of functional properties in 1.5-2 times and low annealing temperatures and short exposure times significantly increase the functional properties in 3-9 times in regard to initial state.

Key words: phase transitions, shape memory effect, thermoelastic martensitic transformation.
