Summary The scope of this study was to examine the effects of plane strain prestrain, induced via cold-rolling, and subsequent automotive paint bake hardening cycle on both tensile and fatigue properties of a hot rolled TRIP780 multiphase steel. Strain-life data has been generated for as-received (0% prestrain), 10% and 20% prestrained samples, in both baked and unbaked conditions. Cold rolling  increased the number of strain reversals to failure at high cyclic strain amplitudes with no effect at low strain amplitudes. Bake hardening increased the number of reversals to failure at high cyclic strain amplitudes. The prestrained material exhibited partial cyclic softening, with some residual strength increase. The residual strength increase was attributed to the austenite to martensite transformation that occurred during the prestraining process.
