Because of their high corrosion resistance and deformation characteristics, the industrial application of stainless steels is of high importance. During deep drawing processes, phase transformation of austenite to martensite occurs, which leads to an increased strain hardening of the material. The phase transformation depends on alloying constituents, transformation temperatures, stresses and strains. Consequently, in the design of deep drawing processes of stainless steels the phase transformation has to be considered.
This paper presents a mathematical model for the calculation of the martensite evolution depending on temperatures, stresses and strains. The precise simulation of deep drawing processes of stainless steels can be enabled by the implementation of this model into commercial FE‐programs.
