Precipitation Strengthening in a Low Carbon Nb-Microalloyed Steel
Among modern weldable high strength steels, low carbon microalloyed steels have been widely used for linepipe, construction, and automobile industries. One of the major technical components to successfully produce these steels is to effectively use precipitation strengthening. In the present paper, the effect of an aging treatment on the microstructure and mechanical properties of a low carbon Nb-microalloyed steel is analyzed.
