Texture Invariant Annealing in Severely Deformed Steel


Article Preview

This paper showed an example of the phenomena that a strong deformed texture does not change after the annealing process in steels. An Fe – 22%Cr – 3%Ni ferritic stainless steel was processed by bar rolling/swaging to a total strain of 4.4 at an ambient temperature, and its annealing behaviour was studied in a temperature range of 400 ~ 700oC. The deformed sample showed a grain size of 200nm, a fraction of high-angle boundary (HAB) of about 0.6, and a strong fiber texture of <110>{uvw}. This texture showed very little change after annealing which was characterised by the development of continuous recrystallization involving recovery processes and followed by a normal grain growth. On the other hand, by annealing a sample that was deformed to total strain of 2.0 containing rather fine grains (270nm) but without a large enough fraction of HAB (0.3), a discontinuous recrystallization took place, and its deformed texture changed considerably.
