Variant Selection in Fe-20Ni-1.8C under Bending

Variant selection is commonly observed in martensitic steels when a stress is applied to the material during transformation. Classically, the selection phenomenon is modelled considering the work of the shape strain in the applied stress field. This shape strain is generally calculated by using the Phenomenological Theory of the Martensite Crystallography (PTMC). In the present study, we studied the martensitic transformation occurring in a Fe-20wt%Ni-1.8wt%C alloy transformed while loaded in four-point bending. A significant variant selection is observed, but surprisingly its nature cannot be explained by the classical approach. A crystallography-based empirical model which accounts for the experimental results is proposed instead.
