Effects of Stress on Structure Transformations in Metals
Possible effects of stress on the movement of grain boundaries and phase boundaries are considered in terms of available driving forces and mechanisms. Examples of some of these effects are presented from the literature and new experimental results. Stress may influence the kinetics of transformation and also the microstructure and texture of the product material.
