This report is a review on aspects of constitutive modelling of high strength steels. Aspects that have been presented are basic crystallography of steel, martensite transformation, thermodynamics and plasticity from a phenomeno- logical point of view. The phenomenon called mechanical twinning is reviewed and the properties of a new material type called TWIP-steel have been briefly presented. Focus has been given on phenomenological models and methods, but an overview over multiscale methods has also been given.
