Abstract:

An anomalous tempering behaviour has been observed in adiabatic shear bands in steel that were previously assumed to be martensite. It has been confirmed that the structure of these bands is martensite but that they contain dense tangles of dislocations. The anomalous tempering behaviour is discussed in relation to carbide precipitation behaviour in martensite that contains a high density of lattice defects. Author
