Influence of Ti on Static Recrystallization in Near Net Shape Steels
This study analyzes the recrystallization behaviour of Ti microalloyed low carbon steels processed by near net shape technology. Faster solidification rates associated with this technology allows for a finer precipitation of TiN particles that are very effective in controlling austenite grain growth during hot working. Furthermore, these small precipitates are shown to be able to retard ecrystallization compared to the kinetics of a plain carbon steel.
