Mechanical Stabilisation of Eutectoid Steel

M. Maalekian, E. Kozeschnik, S. Chatterjee and H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


Martensitic transformation involves the translation of a glissile interface, whose motion can be retarded by defects introduced into the parent austenite. Quantitative measurements of this process of mechanical stabilisation in a eutectoid steel have been compared successfully against a recent theory for the phenomenon.
