The Effects of Thermomechanical Processing on the Microstructure and Mechanical Properties of Ultra-High Strength Dual Phase Steel

Abstract:

Article Preview

In this paper, ultra-high strength dual phase steel was investigated. Thermomechanical processing was conducted by using a laboratory hot rolling mill. The results have shown that the main transformation products at three different kinds of thermomechanical processing were ferrite, bainite, and small amounts of martensite. Laminar cooling led to ferrite grain refinement. The mechanical properties of specimen 1 which was controlled cooling after a relative lower temperature rolling are much higher than that of specimen 2. The presence of martensite islands and precipitates contributed to the enhancement of strength of the present steel. And the presence of retained austenite resulted in higher toughness. As a result, these specimens exhibited satisfactory mechanical properties.
