Modelling of the Mechanical Behaviour of Steels During Phase Transformation : A Review

  • S. Denis

A review of the principal models for transformation plasticity is presented. We have classified these models in two groups depending on the mechanism which is taken into account: models considering volumic variation accommodation and models considering martensite plate orientation. Phenomenological approaches are also analysed.
