Mechanical Properties of Micro-Alloyed TRIP Steel
The micro-alloying concepts have been widely used as a way to optimize the microstructure evolution and improve mechanical properties of conventional constructional steels. In the current study, the effect of micro-alloying on the properties of a multi-phase TRIP steel is analyzed. The micro-alloying of TRIP steel was found to lead to an increase of the yield stress rather than the tensile strength. A physical metallurgical explanation of the effect is proposed.
