PDF | In recent years, the high tensile steels have got much attention in of brittle fracture initiation in bainite steel manufactured by ausforming.
Steel, with a sufficiently developed metastable austenite bay is quenched from the austenitizing temperature to this region, where substantial deformation is carried out, without allowing transformation to take place. The deformed steel is then transformed to martensite during quenching to room temperature, and the appropriate balance of mechanical properties achieved by subsequent tempering. This ausforming treatment can be contrasted with a high temperature thermomechanical treatment HTMT , where the deformation is carried out in the stable austenite region Fig.
Effect of Two-Step Austempering Process on Transformation Kinetics of Nanostructured Bainitic Steel
In a third process, isoforming Fig. The steel can then be slowly cooled to room temperature. The ausforming process needs careful control to be successful and usually involves very substantial deformation.
However, the attraction is that with appropriate steels dramatic increases in strength are achieved without adverse effect on ductility and toughness. Steels, in which austenite transforms rapidly at subcritical temperatures, are not suitable for ausforming. It is necessary to add alloying elements which develop a deep metastable austenite bay by displacing the TTT curve to longer transformation times.
The most useful elements in this respect are chromium, molybdenum, nickel and manganese, and allowance must be made for the fact that deformation of the austenite accelerates the transformation.
Consequently, it is necessary to have sufficient alloying element present to slow down the reaction and avoid the formation of ferrite during cooling to the deformation temperature. Figure 1. Schematic diagrams of thermochemical treatments: a ausforming-low temperature mechanical treatment; b high temperature mechanical treatment; c isoforming transformation. The austenite grain size should be as tine as possible, not only to increase the dislocation density during deformation but also to minimize the martensite plate size on quenching from the metastable austenite bay.
Cooling from the austenitizing temperature to the metastable bay must be sufficiently rapid to avoid the formation of ferrite and, after deformation, the cooling should be fast enough to prevent the formation of bainite. The strength achieved as a result of ausforming increases as the deformation temperature is decreased, presumably because of the greater strain hardening induced in the austenite.
In any case, the temperature chosen should be low enough to avoid recovery and recrystallization, but high enough to prevent bainite from forming during the deformation. Premature austenite decomposition has been found to be detrimental to mechanical properties. The quenched steel was tempered at temperatures ranging from to K for 3 hours. The temperature dependence of hardness for the tempered samples exhibits the maximum at — K which is associated with the precipitations of fine carbides with an average size of about 20 nm.
An increase in tempering temperature to K resulted in hardness drop.
Coagulation of carbides and growth of martensitic laths takes place at these temperatures. The creep tests were carried out at and K up to rupture, which occurred after about 4. Zmienko, A.
