The mechanically induced transformation behavior of 12Crsingle bond9Nisingle bond 4Mo (ASTM A 564) austenitic stainless steel is investigated in different stress states. This phenomenon is studied experimentally on a plane-stress biaxial test facility. The facility can load a sheet specimen simultaneously in shear and tension which enables us to investigate the effect of stress state on transformation kinetics. The martensite fraction is monitored via a magnetic sensor while the strain is measured using a camera and a dot-tracking software.
