A physically based, macroscale constitutive model has been developed that can describe the complex mechanical behavior of metastable austenitic stainless steels. In the developed model a generalized model for the mechanically induced martensitic transformation is introduced. Mechanical tests have been carried out to verify the model. To compute the mechanical response based on the phases present in the material, the mean-field homogenization approach is followed.
