Abstract: The influence of the deformation grade on the recrystallised grain size has been studied in the AISI 304 stainless steel. Therefore, cold rolled samples of this material with reductions varying between 30% and 80% were annealed at different temperatures and subsequently quenched. The mean austenitic grain sizes were measured and compared. Moreover, the correlation between the variation of the thermoelectric power and the grain growth was investigated for each degree of prior deformation.

Abstract: The recrystallisation behaviour of two cold-rolled low carbon microalloyed steels with different Ti content was investigated by thermoelectric power (TEP) measurements and metallography. It was shown that recrystallisation was more sluggish in the higher Ti grade steel as compare with traditional ELC and LC steels. The existence of Ti in solid solution together with the pinning effect of Nb-, V- and Ti-rich particles are likely to be responsible for such behaviour. Metallographic etching with picral revealed that cementite act as preferential nucleation site for recrystallisation.

Abstract: In this work the prominent influence of Particle Stimulated Nucleation (PSN) on the overall process of nucleation and subsequent grain growth is discussed and a global recrystallisation kinetics model is proposed. This model accounts for the effect of the most relevant industrial parameters, such as cold reduction and annealing temperature. Moreover, not only the role of the cementite content, which is function of the nominal carbon content, is included in the model, but also the morphology of the second phase particles. Experimental evidence is given to ascertain the accuracy of the theoretical predictions.
