An Evaluation on Strain Dependency and Strain Rate Sensitivity of Martensitic Transformation Generated in TRIP Steel by Measurement of Magnetic Permeability
If TRIP steel with excellent mechanical properties dominated by strain induced martensitic transformation (SIMT) can be applied to a shock absorber in automobiles, it becomes possible to reduce a weight of the automobiles by decreasing the thickness of their components. In order to improve its reliability by clarification of the mechanical properties, it is necessary to evaluate continuous evolution of martensite during deformation in TRIP steel. In the previous studies, volume resistivity and impedance have been measured during deformation. However, these studies have not been succeeded for the evaluation of martensite with higher precision. Here, because of focusing on a characteristic which martensite indicates ferromagnetism, the evolution of martensite is evaluated by measuring relative magnetic permeability in TRIP steel during deformation at various strain rate.
