Abstract

Elasto-plastic flow curves of dual phase steels consisting of martensite and ferrite have been predicted by using the secant method proposed by WENG. The predicted flow stress for a given volume fraction of martensite becomes the upper bound when the matrix is considered to be martensite, whilst the predicted flow stress becomes the lower bound when the matrix is ferrite. This prediction is compared with experimental results obtained from Mn-Si-C martensite-ferrite steels where the volume fraction and morphology were altered by changing heat treatment. It is found that the prediction is in good agreement with the experimental results when the matrix structure can be identified by means of optical microscopy. In the case where the matrix structure is percolated and is not distinguishable, the flow stress curves lie between those two bounds.
