Paper Title:
Recrystallisation, Grain Growth and Texture Evolution in Nonoriented Electrical Steels
  Abstract

The magnetic properties of nonoriented electrical steels are influenced by grain size and texture of final products. The key technology in the commercial production of nonoriented electrical steels is to grow grains with {hk0}<001> texture up to the optimum size in the final annealing process. The problems related to grain size control have been extensively investigated, while texture control has received much less attention. Therefore, there is enough room to improve the magnetic properties through the control of texture. In this study, systematic investigations on the texture evolution during both recrystallization and grain growth have been made. The formation of recrystallization texture is explained by oriented nucleation. This is supported by the fact that the area fraction of nuclei or recrystallized grains with specific orientation to all new grains remains almost constant during the progress of recrystallization. Most nuclei have a high misorientation angle of 25∼55° with the surrounding deformed matrices. During the progress of grain growth, the Goss texture component continues to decrease because the Goss grains have a high percentage of low angle, low mobility grain boundaries. The grains of Goss orientation have a smaller grain size than those of random orientation.
