Strain Partitioning and Mechanical Stability of Retained Austenite

Joo Hyun Ryu, Dong-Ik Kim, Hyoung Seop Kim, H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia and Dong-Woo Suh

The mechanical stability of austenite in steels which rely on transformation-induced plasticity is usually attributed to its chemical composition, size and shape. We demonstrate here that another factor, the partitioning of strain between phases with different mechanical properties, can dramatically influence the stability.
