Transformation Textures in Steels
The mechanisms by which textures can be inherited in transformed phases are discussed in the light of different transformation mechanisms. Possible origins of variant selection in the different cases are reviewed and classified. Evidence is presented for a hitherto unsuspected source of variant selection that arises from the stresses which are generated during transformation due to the presence of micro-segregation. Some model predictions show the potential effect of this phenomenon on textures in bainite or martensite.
