In the current study an elasto-plastic phase field (PF) model, based on the PF microelasticity theory proposed by A.G. Khachaturyan, is used to investigate the effects of external stresses on the evolution of martensitic microstructure in a Fe-0.3%C polycrystalline alloy. The current model is improved to include the effects of grain boundaries in a polycrystalline material. The evolution of plastic deformation is governed by using a time dependent Ginzburg-Landau equation, solving for the minimization of the shear strain energy. PF simulations are performed in 2D and 3D to study the effects of tension, compression and shear on the martensitic transformation. It has been found that external stresses cause an increase in the volume fraction of the martensitic phase if they add to the net effect of the transformation strains, and cause a decrease otherwise. It has been concluded that the stress distribution and the evolution of martensitic microstructure can be predicted with the current model in a polycrystalline material under applied stresses.
