The Strength and Ductility of Low Carbon Steel Subjected to Equal Channel Angular Pressing and Extrusion at a Low Temperature


Article Preview

The deformation treatment of Fe360 low carbon steel by extrusion, equal-channel angular pressing, and equal-channel angular pressing with extrusion in one pass at a temperature of 673 K is considered.The strength increase in steel is shown for all methods of hardening. It is noted that in the range of temperature under consideration, the strength characteristics and the relative residual constriction of hardened steel samples are the parameters of low sensitivity to temperature decrease. The material destruction mechanism in various states under uniaxial tension under conditions of room and low temperature is analyzed.
