  • Abstract The martensitic transformation in quenching and partitioning (Q&P) steels is greatly influenced by loading conditions such as environmental temperature and loading speed, and thus impacts the macroscopic mechanical properties during the deformation process. Within this work, an elastic-visco-plastic self-consistent (EVPSC) framework coupling with phase transformation model is used to simulate the stress strain responses as well as the microstructure evolution of the multi-phases Q& P980 steel under uniaxial tension process. A temperature and strain rate dependent transformation kinetics is incorporated into the model and phase transformation behaviors of the Q& P980 steel under different temperatures (25°C∼100 °C) and strain rates (0.0002s-1∼2s-1) are successfully characterized. The corresponding stress strain responses under different loading conditions are predicted and compared with the experimental data.
