The Fe-30Ni alloy investigated exhibits a single-phase austenitic structure. In this alloy the martensitic transformation can occur both during quenching and plastic deformation. Thermo-mechanical treatments applied for Fe-30Ni can result in the formation of a wide range of microstructures with various martensite morphologies and volume fractions, what gives a possibility to achieve different properties of the alloy. In the present work a microstructural analysis of the deformed Fe-30Ni alloy was performed after several variants of thermo-mechanical treatment. The microstructure was examined using light microscopy (LM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The determination of the volume fraction of martensite formed in different thermo-mechanical treatments was performed using stereological methods and magnetic measurements. The mechanical properties of the alloy investigated were determined in tensile tests.
