The Effect of Interphase in Micromechanical Modeling of Dual-Phase Steel

2D RVE of DP steel with gradient interphase. 2D RVE of DP steel with gradient interphase.


A novel method to model the interphase between phases in DP steels is introduced and implemented on a specimen created from DP980. Use of the proposed method remedied the problem of underestimation of stress-strain curve by 2D RVEs and also showed that failure initiates at the interphase between phases.
