Stefan Prüger, Lars Mehlhorn, Uwe Mühlich and Meinhard Kuna Study of Reinforcing Mechanisms in TRIP-Matrix Composites under Compressive Loading by Means of Micromechanical Simulations Advanced Engineering Materials 15
Particle reinforced TRIP-matrix composites, consisting of partially stabilized zirconia particles embedded in a TRIP-steel matrix, show a very heterogeneous phase transformation behavior. It is due to both the stress concentration and the void formation as a result of interface decohesion. The figure depicts the distribution of martensite volume fraction in the matrix and the volume fraction of monoclinic zirconia in the particle after uniaxial compression ϵ = 0.35.
