The Influence of Quenching Temperature on the Mechanical Properties of a Dual-Phase Steel with 0.094% C and 0.53% Mn
In this article, the authors have analysed the influence of quenching temperature (TQ) on the mechanical properties of a dual-phase steel with 0.094 % C and 0.53% Mn. In order to obtain a ferrite-martensite structure, specimens of this material have been the subjected to intercritical quenching that consisted of heating at 750, 770, 790, 810 and 830 °C, maintaining for 30 minutes and cooling in water. These specimens have then been subjected to metallographic analysis and tensile test in order to determine the volume fraction of martensite (VM) in the structure, ultimate tensile strength (Rm), the 0.2% offset yield strength (Rp0.2), the total elongation (A5) and the Rp0.2/Rm ratio.
