Paper Title:
Pinning of Austenite Grain Boundaries by Mixed AlN and Nb(C,N) Precipitates
  Abstract

The use of Nb(C,N) to pin prior austenite grains during thermomechanical processing can give rise to bimodal structures linked to Nb segregation and subsequent variation in precipitate distribution and stability on reheating and deformation. The segregation tendency of Al is much less compared with Nb so that AlN may provide grain boundary pinning in regions of reduced Nb(C,N) volume fraction and stability. Quantification of precipitate and prior austenite grain size distributions after reheating has confirmed the governing mechanisms of precipitate dissolution / coarsening whilst identifying grain boundary pinning by AlN at temperature below 1125 °C, but controlled by Nb(C,N) at higher temperatures.
