AISI type 316 austenitic stainless-steel plates were strengthened by warm rolling to different strain levels in the temperature range 823–1123 K. Samples from the plates were hardness tested at various temperatures up to 923 K. Hardness values have been correlated to yield- and ultimate tensile-strength using results of tensile tests carried out at 300 and 923 K. The results of the hot-hardness tests and correlations are discussed in terms of the retention of strength achieved by warm rolling in...

The effect of various alloying elements on static recovery and recrystallization kinetics in Ni-Cr austenitic stainless steels was investigated by an intermittent two stage hot compression test. Types 304 and 316 stainless steels showed a marked retardation of recrystallization kinetics compared with that of austenite in 0.25%Si-1.25%Mn steel. This retardation was found to arise from solid solution effect of Cr, but not of Ni. The finish-rolling temperature to attain the completely recrystallize...

Abstract The sensitization domains of three AISI 304 austenitic stainless steels, differing only by their carbon content or grain size, have been determined using the ASTM A 262 Practice E and the EPR tests, in order to study the carbon content and grain size effects on sensitization kinetics in the temperature range 600 to 800 C. It has been found that increasing the grain size delays the beginning of the sensitization at the lower temperature considered in this study (600 C) and considerably d...

AbstractThe background physical metallurgy and the data available on recrystallization and grain growth after hot deformation of low-carbon manganese steel are briefly reviewed. The derived structural relationships are then used in a computing procedure which enables the evolution of microstructure during rolling to be predicted as a function of the temperatures, pass reductions, speeds, and times in rolling schedules. Plate rolling is considered as a specific example and it is shown that uncert...

Abstract A growth equation for individual grains in single-phase materials is suggested. It is used to calculate a rate equation for normal grain growth and the size distribution in the material. It predicts a maximum size of twice the average size. The theory is modified to take into account the effect of second-phase particles. In an alternative treatment the array of grains is described in terms of a kind of defects introduced into a perfect array. The defects move through the array during gr...

The effect of Thermomechanical Processing (TMP) on the fine structure (dislocation density and fragments evolution), recrystallization, carbide transformations and tendency toward intercrystalline corrosion (ICC) and corrosion-mechanical strength of AISI 321 type steels is described. It’s shown that the grain size and overall amount of carbide phase has almost no effect on ICC. With an increase in dislocation density a tendency is observed toward a reduction in corrosion rate, but increases with...

Abstract Various types of thermomechanical treatments, such as controlled rolling followed by accelerated cooling (i.e. a thermomechanical control process [TMCP]) and intercritical heat treatment, have been developed in austenitic, ferritic, martensitic and duplex stainless steels in order to increase strength without sacrifice of ductility, toughness and corrosion resistance.
