Recrystallization Behaviour of an Austenitic High Mn Steel
The recrystallization behaviour of a cold rolled austenitic Fe-Mn steel is studied to explain the fine grained final microstructure. Thorough investigation of the kinetics, the microstructure and the texture evolution during recrystallization showed that the fast recrystallization kinetics is responsible for the final microstructure, while an oriented nucleation mechanism determines the texture evolution. The reason for the fast recrystallization kinetics is the low amount of recovery prior to recrystallization, resulting in a high driving force for the latter.
