Steels with Ferrite-Bainite Microstructure with Improved Weldability and Cold Resistance for Main Pipelines
The required complex of properties of modern pipe steels, including improved weldability and cold resistance, can be achieved due to formation of fine-grained ferrite-bainite microstructure of steel. Effect of various designs of additional alloying of steel on phase transformations with use of deformation CCT diagrams is investigated. Key parameters of TMCPtechnology, necessary for obtaining the best complex of properties of plate and strip products are determined. Results of industrial trials in production of steel with ferrite-bainite microstructure of Russian steel manufacturers are presented.
