Deformation stimulates martensitic transformations via stress-assisted nucleation on the same sites responsible for the transformation on cooling, and strain-induced nucleation on new sites produced by plastic strain. Quantitative models for the kinetics of each of these transformation modes allow prediction of constitutive flow relations for the transformation plasticity that accompanies transformation under stress. The flow stress is influenced by both the static hardening contribution of the transformation product, and the dynamic softening effect of the transformation as a deformation mechanism.
