Paper Title:
The Recrystallization Behaviour of Nb Microalloyed Steels

The deformation and recrystallization behaviour of a range of Nb microalloyed steels has been studied using hot torsion. This work focuses on the change from strain dependent to strain independent recrystallization behaviour as a function of the alloy content, initial microstructure and deformation conditions. It is found that there is a complex interaction between deformation, recrystallization and strain induced precipitation, which has significant implications for controlled rolling in hot strip and plate mills. The data also revealed that the pre-existing precipitates did not influence the behaviour of post deformation softening.
