Paper Title:
Effect of Niobium on the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Low Carbon Steel Plate with Intercritical Quenching
  Abstract

The microstructure and mechanical properties of the low carbon steel plates containing Niobium content of 0.038%, 0.063% and 0.082% with intercritical quenching were studied by SEM, TEM, tensile and impact tests. The results showed that the intercritical quenching steel with high Niobium content can gain the fine microstructure , but also easily obtain the martensite, which made the strength very high but low temperature toughness very low, however, the steel with low Niobium content can not reach enough austenitization level, which caused both low temperature and yield ratio high relatively. So in the given rolling and heat treatment process, there was suitable Niobium content can contribute to obtain the optimal austenization level resulting in the good combination of strength, yield ratio, elongation and low temperature toughness after intercritical quenching in the low carbon steel.
