The present article proposes a constitutive model that includes the stacking fault energy (SFE)-dependence of the deformation behavior of Fe-Mn-C-(Al) TWIP steels. The different kinetics of the SFE-dependent strain hardening of twinned and twin-free grains are accounted for. The high flow stress of TWIP steels investigated is attributed to the combined effect of a large fraction of twinned grains and a low dynamic recovery rate—both effects being associated with its lowest SFE.
