Best Answer

TRIP steel is Transformation Induced Plasticity steel. It is a composite steel that consists of ferrite, bainite, martensite precipitants and restrained austenite. The austenite will transform into martensite when strained, thus increasing the strength of the steel. To stabilize the austenite you need to introduce alloy elements, usually Manganese.
