The mechanical properties of austenitic and martensitic stainless steels have been the subject of numerous research papers. The most complex types of materials, however, are the semiaustenitic steels which transform from austenite to martensite during plastic deformation. The most common commercial material which makes use of this characteristic is AISI Type 301. The research reported here had as its goal the determination of the mechanisms which control strain hardening and plastic deformation in commercially produced Type 301. The primary research tools used to reveal the mechanisms of deformation were the measurement of martensite forming during plastic deformation and the examination, by electron transmission and electron diffraction, of tension specimens deformed to various increments of plastic strain.
