Reverse transformation of different martensite textures has been investigated. Starting with austenite the martensite was produced by rolling, deep cooling, or by a combined treatment. In most cases, during the reverse transformation the reconstitution of the original austenite texture occurred. This is explained by oriented nucleation of residual austenite during reverse transformation.
