Modelling the microstructure of martensitic steels

Rahnama, A. and Qin, R. S. (2015). Modelling the microstructure of martensitic steels. Computational Materials Science, 96(A) pp. 102–107.



A method based on the kinetics of crystal growth has been developed and applied to the computation of three-dimensional microstructure in austenite–martensite steels. The detailed crystallography of the transformation is used to model a realistic martensitic microstructure during the transformation without an external system of stresses. The interaction energy based on the plastic work model is taken into account to compute the variant selection in an austenitic stainless steel and formation of martensite under externally applied stress.
