Paper Title:
A Study of Abnormal Behavior of Grain Growth in High-Strength Boron-Added Steel
  Abstract

In order to save natural resources and to reduce production costs, many industries have conducted studies on new developed steels and manufacturing processes. For instance, the use of high-strength bolts can decrease the number, size and weight of bolts used in a car, thereby decreasing fuel consumption. For this reason, steel makers are developing boron-added steel for high-strength bolts, which eliminates production processes. However, it has been pointed out that this boron-added steel is sensitive to austenite grain coarsening. The austenite grain coarsening does not occur uniformly, hence it can affect mechanical properties such as tensile, fatigue and so on. Therefore, the aim of this study is to investigate the abnormal behavior of grain growth and to determine the optimum amount of alloying elements in boron-added steel for use in making high-strength bolts.
