More Complete Theory for the Calculation of the Martensite–Start Temperature in Steels

H. S. Yang, D. W. Suh and H. K. D. H. Bhadeshia


A validated model has been created for the martensite–start temperature which takes into account chemical composition, thermodynamics, austenite grain size, austenite grain shape, plastic strain and stress.
