Development of Cold Rolling and Intercritical Annealing Texture in Two TRIP-Aided Steels
High strength TRIP-aided steel sheets with high formability and better ductility are of industrial interest. Texture control and retained austenite characterization are considered as the main factors with respect to the formability and ductility. In this work, the effect of cold rolling and intercritical annealing on texture development has been investigated for two TRIP-aided steel sheets, which are different in Si and Al content. Experiments show that the cold rolling extends the a and g–fibers on these grades of steel. Intercretically annealing decreases the intensity of a–fiber and leads to sharpness of g–fiber, especially for Al steel.
