Texture Evolution along the Layer Thickness in a Fe-3%Si Steel under Electropulsing Treatment
Effects of electric current densities on recrystallization texture evolution in cold-rolled Fe-3%Si steel were investigated by using a high current density electropulsing treatment. Results showed that the orientation density of α fiber and fiber varied with the specimen thickness during current passing. However, with the current density increasing, the difference from layer thickness almost vanished. In addition, Goss component texture was the final sharper one but no relation with the specimen thickness at 9.96kAmm-2. By the texture evolution analysis, it was found that the preferred nucleation always occurred in the surface layer due to the high storied energy coursed by previous cold rolling. Combined with the corresponding microstructures, it could be found that though there was an apparent texture evolution along specimen thickness, the microstructure had no change with thickness. In addition, due to the application of electropulsing, the recrystallization nucleation was greatly increased.
