Shirzadi, A. A.; Abreu, H.; Pocock, L.; Klobčar, D.; Withers, P. J. and Bhadeshia, H. K. D. H. (2009). Bainite orientation in plastically deformed austenite. International Journal of Materials Research, 100(1) pp. 40–45.



Experiments have been conducted to see whether specific crystallographic variants of bainite form in polycrystalline steel when transformation occurs from plastically deformed austenite which is otherwise free from externally applied stress. It is demonstrated by studying both overall and microtexture that there is no perceptible variant selection as bainite forms. Indeed, the texture is found to weaken on transformation.
