Texture and Microstructural Evolution under Electric Current Pulses in a Fe-3%Si Steel
The evolution of the recrystallization texture under high current density electric current pulses (ECP) was investigated in a cold-rolled Fe-3%Si steel sheet. Results showed that the preferred nucleation always occurred in the direction parallel to the current direction at the primary stage of recrytallization. With the increment of the current density, the effect of current direction on texture and microstructural evolution was decreased. Due to the different texture component along the layer depth under different current densities, it was also found that the recrystallization nucleation was much easier to occur from the top surface.
