By means of synchrotron X-ray diffraction method the stress-induced martensite transformation in TiNi (with two different phase compositions) at room temperature was investigated in situ. It has been shown that in the alloys with temperature-induced martensite in the initial state a nonperiodic fluctuation of intensity of the X-ray reflexes appeared due to anomalous transformation B2 + B19′T → B2 → B19′Si.
