Martensitic phase transformations are a subset of diffusionless/displacive solid state structural changes in which the strain energy arising from a shear-dominant lattice deformation controls the kinetics and product morphology during the transformation. Martensitic transformation results in special interfaces which leads to many crystallographic and kinetic aspects of such structural changes. A detailed treatment of the structure and mobility of martensitic interfaces is presented. Interfacial mobility, martensitic nucleation, and martensitic growth are described in the article. Some special applications like transformation plasticity and biological martensitic transformations are also discussed.
