Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Hot Rolled TRIP Steel Based on Dynamic Transformation of Undercooled Austenite
The microstructure characteristics and tensile properties in a 0.2C-1.5Mn-1.0Al-0.50Si, high strength hot rolled TRIP steel obtained by a new processing based on dynamic transformation of undercooled austenite(DTUA) were investigated. The results show that the main feature of the new technology is that the ferrite was produced by the applied strain during DTUA. Characterization by means of optical and scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction has shown that the microstructure of the investigated steel contained a ferrite matrix with fine grain size, bainite with small bainitic packets, and high volume fraction of retained austenite with a large number of granular retained austenite. Tensile testing indicates the steels produced by this processing have higher strength (790MPa) and total elongation (35%) as well as low yield ratio..
