Abstract:

Article Preview

A Q550 high strength steel was selected at two different cooling rates through ultra-fast cooling process, and its microstructures and strengthening mechanisms were analyzed. The results show the bainite transformation temperature of the steel decreased with the increasing of cooling rate.The ultra-fast cooling process can improve the performance of Q550 compared with the conventional cooling process, and the yield strength, tensile strength and elongation are 600MPa, 755MPa and 19%, and - 20 °Cimpact energy is 253J, and good strength and toughness are obtained under ultra-fast cooling process. The microstructure of this steel is bainite and good strength and toughness are caused by the refinement of bainite and fine precipitates. Ultra-fast cooling technology improves the strength and toughness of this steel effectively.
