Recently there has been a resurgence of interest in the effect
of the martensitic phase transition which occurs in many A15 com-
poundsl on superconductivity2 and on elastic and anelastic behav-
ior.3 Since in many practical applications, A15 compounds are sub-
ject to considerable stress and strain, it is of interest to exam-
ine the interaction of stress with the martensitic transition; this
paper is an examination of the effects of stress predicted by a
simple Landau model which successfully describes many features of
the transition and the related temperature dependence of the elas-
tic modulus (cll-cl2)/2.1 Earlier, Pietrass4 has discussed some of
the effects of stress on the phase transition, in the context of a
Landau model, and the present paper is an extension and development
of this theoretical approach. We will focus on the effect of stress
on the temperature ranges of stability and metastability of various
types of martensitic domain and will briefly discuss the non-
linearity of the stress-strain relation in a polycrystalline A15.
SYMMETRIZED STRESSES AND STRAINS
The lattice distortions associated with various types of mar-
tensitic domain'and the effect of different types of stress are
most efficiently characterized i'n terms of symmetrized linear
