Microstructures, Mechanical Properties and Textures of Deep Drawing Dual-Phase Steel


Article Preview

C-Mn-Cr-Mo dual phase steel was piloted in laboratory. OM, SEM, tensile tests and XRD were used to characterize the microstructures, mechanical properties and to determine the texture. The results indicate that when annealed at 860 °C, the tensile strength of the tested steel is 440 MPa, elongation and r value exceed 35% and 1.4, respectively. With the temperature increases from 820°C to 860°C, the average grain size of ferrite increases and ferrite trends to be uniform gradually, therefore, the r value increase gradually. When the temperature is higher than 860°C, bainite forming results in reducing of r value. Al could weaken the tendency of heterogeneous deformation and modified the annealing texture by refining hot-rolling grain size. Mo-based carbides existed in hot-rolled sheet developed {111} texture in the stage of ferrite recrystallization, then re-dissolved in intercritial annealing stage so as to improve hardenability.
