Kinematic and Topological Models of Martensitic Interfaces

  • Robert C. Pond (a1), Xiao Ma (a1), Yaw W. Chai (a1) and John P. Hirth (a2)

The Phenomenological Theory of Martensite Crystallography, developed fifty years ago, envisages martensitic interfaces to be invariant planes of the shape transformation. This theory has been very successful, but neither incorporates the notion of atomic relaxations at martensitic interfaces, nor explicitly demonstrates that such interfaces are glissile. A new model, called the Topological Model, is proposed that addresses these issues. Predictions of the habit plane and relative orientation of the crystals according to the two models are compared and contrasted.
