Effect of Austempering Process on the Properties of TRIP-Steel


Article Preview

Transformation-induced-plasticity (TRIP) –aided steels are a promising solution for producing lighter, crash-resistant car bodies, due to their high-strength and large uniform elongation. The influences of the austempering temperature and time on the microstructure mechanical properties and the transformation behavior of a Si-Mn TRIP steel are investigated in this paper.
