  1. Effect of ART-Annealing Conditions on Microstructural Regulation and Deformation Behavior of 0.17C–9Mn–3.5Al TRIP-Aided Steel

    The work hardening behavior of 0.17C–9Mn–3.5Al TRIP aided steel has been investigated. The multistage can be mainly attributed to the discontinuous TRIP effect, which is related to the volume fraction of retained austenite and its different stability levels as well as cooperative deformation of the multiphase microstructure. Thus, the active TRIP effect predominately affects the high strain stage, resulting in a higher work hardening ability and a increased plasticity.

    The usage of different carbon carriers in the EAF is modeled and simulated with a comprehensive dynamic EAF process simulation model. Therefore, the charge coal is divided into carbon and volatile contents with different reaction rates and the gas phase is further developed. On example of palm kernel shells, the different reaction behavior is reproduced by the simulation.

  3. High Temperature Corrosive Environment in a Sintering Plant for Pig Iron Production and Its Effect on Different Steel Grades

    This study examines high temperature corrosion effects of sintering plants in the pig iron production. A thorough examination of corrosives is given. Materials exposed to such environment suffer from high temperature oxidation and molten salt corrosion at 900°C with chloride and sulphide species. A high relevance of corrosive behaviour to the alloying elements (Cr, Ni, Mn, Si, Ti) is found.

  4. Effect of Dendritic Morphology and Central Segregation of Billet Castings on the Microstructure and Mechanical Property of Hot-Rolled Wire Rods

    The high carbon billets and their hot-rolled wire rods are researched to elucidate the effect of central segregation on the microstructure and mechanical property of the following hot-rolled rods. The way to reduce the central segregation of the billets and improve the mechanical property of the wire rods from the very beginning of casting process has been suggested.

  5. Effects of Mn Content on the Warm Stretch-Flangeabiliy of C–Si–Mn TRIP-Aided Steels

    Warm stretch-flangeability of 0.2%C–1.5%Si–(1.5–5.0)%Mn TRIP-aided sheet steels is investigated. Warm hole-expansion at TF = 150–250 °C after hole-punching at 25 °C enhanced the stretch-flangeability of 5% Mn steel. Use of hole-drilling instead of the hole-punching further increased the warm stretch-flangeability and raised the optimum expanding temperature to TF = 250–300 °C.
