Interfacial Structural Modification of Martensitic Transformations


Article Preview

The free energy function of martensitic transformation is established using Landau polynomial. According to the free energy function, the interfacial structural modification of austenite-martensite with the chemical driving force of martensitic transformation and elastic constants of materials is discussed. Some characteristics of martensitic transformation, such as the difference between thermoelastic and nonthermoelastic martensitic transformation, martensitic growth, are explained.
