Effect of the Strain Reversal on the Microstructure and the Recrystallization Kinetics of the Austenite


Article Preview

It has been demonstrated recently that when a reversion of the strain is applied during the hot working of a Nb-microalloyed steel, the subsequent static recrystallization kinetics is significantly affected. However, depending on the magnitude of the reversion, the static softening kinetics can be accelerated or delayed. This relates to the substructure dissolution taking place by the effect of the reversal. In the present work, new microstructural results obtained by EBSD on an austenitic stainless steel hot deformed by torsion is used to explain better the observed effect of the reversion of the strain.
