Steels: Processing, Structure, and Performance (Second Edition)
Chapter 18: Deformation, Mechanical Properties, and Fracture of Quenched and Tempered Carbon Steels
Steels with martensitic and tempered martensitic microstructures, though sometimes perceived as brittle, exhibit plasticity and ductile fracture behavior under certain conditions. This chapter describes the alloying and tempering conditions that produce a ductile form of martensite in low-carbon steels. It also discusses the effect of tempering temperature on the mechanical behavior and deformation properties of medium-carbon steels.
