Prediction of Flow Curves and Micro-Structural Evolution in Strain Induced Dynamic Transformation of Low Carbon Steel
The relationships between flow stress curve and microstructure evolution in strain induced dynamic phase transformation (SIDT) of low carbon steel (0.22wt.%) were quantitatively investigated. The deformation was carried out at just above Ar3 temperature (710°C) as a function of strain rate (0.01-5/sec). The softening process of SIDT was well agreed with calculated result derived from Avrami’s and constitutive equation at higher strain rate than 0.5/sec. However, the calculated results differed from the experimental curve at strain rate of less than 0.2/sec. This is due to fact that the dynamic transformation from austenite to ferrite can not be completed owing to less stored energy during hot deformation.
