Niobium in Microalloyed Structural and Engineering Steels

Abstract:

Article Preview

The use of Niobium as a microalloying element is particularly beneficial in increasing strength and toughness through its ability to control austenite grain size during reheating, and via grain refinement and precipitation hardening after austenite transformation. Steels with lower carbon contents can thus be utilised, further enhancing toughness and weldability.
