The fracture behaviour of two Advanced-High-Strength-Steels (AHSS) of similar yield strength can have a sudden change from ductile to rapid post uniform deformation failure depending on the strain-path. Microstructure analysis indicates that the different failure modes are due to a change in the ability of the second phase to deform.
