An equivalence principle for mechanical and magnetoelastic stresses is used for the quantitative theoretical description of giant magnetostrain effect in ferromagnetic martensite. Field-induced strains are computed in the framework of phenomenological magnetoelastic model for two different orientations of magnetic field with respect to the crystal axes. Good agreement between the theoretical and experimental field dependencies of the strains in Ni-Mn-Ga alloys is achieved.
