Localized Deformation in Multiphase, Ultra-Fine-Grained 6 Pct Mn Transformation-Induced Plasticity Steel

Abstract

Multiphase, ultra-fine-grained transformation-induced plasticity (MP UFG TRIP) steel containing 6 mass pct Mn was obtained by cold rolling and intercritical annealing of an initially fully martensitic microstructure. UFG microstructures with an average grain size less than 300 nm were obtained. The amount of austenite in the microstructures, speculated to be formed by diffusionless transformation, was controlled by changing the intercritical temperature. The tensile properties were strongly influenced by the volume amount and the stability of the reversely transformed austenite. The MP UFG TRIP steel was characterized by pronounced localization of the deformation. The deformation band properties were analyzed in detail.
