Effect of Thermo-Mechanical Variables on the Dynamic Ferrite Transformation Induced by Hot Deformation in 0.22C-Mn Steel
Hot torsion of a C (0.22 wt%)-Mn steel was used to investigate the influence of thermomechanical arameters on the strain induced dynamic transformation (SIDT) of ferrite. The pecimens were strained as a function of strain rate (0.05/sec - 5/sec) and strain (- 5.0) at right bove Ar3 temperature. The critical strain to initiate dynamically transformed ferrite nuclei during deformation increased as increasing the strain rate. On the other hand the completion of SIDT was hifted to larger strain by decreasing strain rate. This is due to the fact that the dynamic ransformation of ferrite was processed in the interior of austenite grain as well as at grain boundary y large stored energy and many nucleation sites for high strain rate. The dynamic transformed micro-structure of ferrite was developed to higher angle and the grain size could be refined to ~3 ㎛ at strain of 3.0 and 5/sec.
