The Grain Refining and Strengthening Mechanism of C-Mn Steel by CSP


Article Preview

The grain refining of C-Mn steel on CSP line was investigated in this paper. The grain size was about 100μm after rolling by stand F1 and then decreased all the way of the rolling process(stands F2-F6) to 15μm. The strengthening mechanisms, grain refinement strengthening, solution strengthening, precipitation strengthening and dislocation strengthening, were figured out to develop a physical metallurgy model for prediction of the properties. It was noted that there is an agreement between the predicted properties and the measured ones of the steel.
