A linear regression model consisting of the weighted sums of certain alloying elements has recently been developed to predict the activation energy (Qrex) and kinetics of static recrystallisation (SRX) for hot-deformed austenite based on stress relaxation test results for over 40 different carbon steels. The validity of the model has been further assessed here by determining the Qrex and the kinetics of SRX of certain high-Nb bearing steels, extra-low and low carbon Nb-Mo bainitic and high-Si dual phase and TRIP steels, and Nb-Ti grades with the varying N content. The validity of the model is shown to be fairly good for the Nb-Ti, Nb-Mo and Cr-Mo grades. The approach of maximum effective concentration of Nb and Si and the weight factor for Cr enable reasonable fit for DP, TRIP and Nb-Cr steels, as well. Possible influences of C and N on Qrex and the kinetics of SRX were checked, but none was observed in microalloyed steels.
