Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Cold-Rolled TRIP Steel Sheets


Article Preview

Transformation induced plasticity (TRIP) steels have complex multiphase microstructure composed of ferrite, bainite and retained austenite [1]. These metastable retained austenite can transforms into martensite during plastic deformation, which generates a TRIP effect resulting in excellent combination of high strength and ductility even at high strength level [2-5]. For this reason, the TRIP-aided steel sheets are suitable to fabricate automobile parts, as they can offer excellent formability without sacrifice the strength and safety requirement of the steel sheets. As a result, the development of TRIP-aided steels has been a very important issue in the automobile field.
