Abstract: Based on the theory developed in Part I of this paper [Levitas, V.I., Ozsoy, I. B., 2008. Micromechanical modeling of stress-induced phase transformations. Part 1. Thermodynamics and kinetics of coupled interface propagation and reorientation. Int. J. Plasticity. doi: 10.1016/j.ijplas.2008.02.004], various non-trivial examples of microstructure evolution under complex multiaxial loading are presented. For the case without interface rotation, the effect of the athermal thresholds for austenite (A)-martensite (M) and martensitic variant M(I)-variant M(II) interfaces and loading paths on stress-strain curves and phase transformations was studied. For coupled interface propagation and rotation, two types of numerical simulations were carried out. The tetragonal-orthorhombic transformation has been studied under general three-dimensional interface orientation and zero athermal threshold. The cubic-tetragonal transformation was treated with allowing for an athermal threshold and interface reorientation within a plane. The effect of the athermal threshold, the number of martensitic variants and an interface orientation in the embryo was studied in detail. It was found that an instability in the interface normal leads to a jump-like interface reorientation that has the following features of the energetics of a first-order transformation: there are multiple energy minima versus interface orientation that are separated by an energy barrier; positions of minima do not change during loading but their depth varies; when the barrier disappears (i.e. one of the minima transforms to the local saddle or maximum points), the system rapidly evolves toward another stable orientation. Depending on the loading and material parameters, we observed a large continuous change in interface orientation, a jump in interface reorientation, a jump in volume fractions and stresses, an expected stress relaxation during the phase transition and unexpected stress growth during the transition because of large change in elastic moduli.
