When asked which strengthening mechanism controls the mechanical properties
of martensitic steels, the reader would not err by replying, "All of the above."
Indeed, the high strength of martensite draws upon several mechanisms, with
Low-temperature stability of austenite (7) is highly beneficial in light of the
general observation that austenitic steels are tougher than ferritic (a) or
martensitic (a') steels because of the intrinsically tougher austenite FCC crystal
In the first case, high-strength martensitic steels may be embrittled following a
short-time temper at low temperatures (in the range of 300 to 350°C). The "350°C
embrittlement" is also referred to as "tempered martensite embrittlement" with a ...

This is one of the best textbooks on physical metallurgy. My preference is for Dieter's book, but that is because it was the textbook for my physical metallurgy course in graduate school. Hertzberg's book is more modern. Read full review
