Paper Title:
Influence of Boron on Dynamic Recrystallization and Continuous Cooling Transformation of High Strength Interstitial Free Steels
  Abstract

The paper examines the effect of boron (B) on the dynamic recrystallization and continuous cooling transformation (CCT) behavior in Nb-Ti microalloyed high strength interstitial free (IF) steels. For this purpose, two Nb-Ti microalloyed IF steels containing 0.003wt.% and 0.0005wt.% B, respectively, and one IF steel without B were chosen. The dynamic recrystallization behavior was investigated using hot compression testing. The character of the austenite to ferrite transformation during continuous cooling was studied by dilatometry test and CCT diagrams for the IF steels have been constructed. It was found that the initiation of dynamic recrystallization is delayed as the amount of boron increases. Addition of B retards the austenite to ferrite transformation as well. Under cooling rates of 0.5 and 1oC s-1, which correspond to slow cooling rates in the hot strip mill, the addition of B leads to the development of acicular ferrite and bainite phases. On the other hand, at similar cooling conditions the B free IF steel was observed to have a polygonal ferrite microstructure.
