Linking Crystallographic, Chemical and Nano-Mechanical Properties of Phase Constituents in DP and TRIP Steels
This paper discusses practical EBSD strategies for identification and partitioning of phase constituents in DP and TRIP microstructures including martensite, retained-austenite, bainite, intercritical and epitaxial ferrite. EBSD data is complemented with nano-indentation analysis, providing evidence of indentation-induced phase transformation of retained-austenite in TRIP steel and micro-crack initiation at the interface between ferrite and mechanically transformed martensite.
