Models for Static and Metadynamic Recrystallisation of Interstitial Free Steels


Article Preview

We have investigated the static and metadynamic behaviour of the interstitial free steels and in particular the effects of the steeling elements (phosphorous and boron) on kinetics of recrystallisation. The results showed that the strain for the initiation of strain independent softening (often referred to as metadynamic recrystallisation) varies with the Zener-Hollomon parameter and steel composition. Strain rate had a strong influence on kinetics of metadynamic recrystallisation. An increase in temperature from 930oC to 1100oC led to a decrease in time for 50% softening (about one order of magnitude) in the SRX region. However, for the same temperature range, the time for 50% MDRX did not change significantly.
