Abstract
Abstract The mechanical behavior of a P92-type steel was studied by tension and Charpy impact tests in the temperature range of 77–293 K. The yield stress (YS) and uniform elongation increase concurrently with decreasing temperature because the steel exhibits work-hardening behavior. Transgranular dimpled fracturing remains the primary fracture mechanism under tension down to 193 K. Brittle fracture takes place at lower temperatures. At 77 K, the steel exhibits a well-defined yield plateau. Impact tests demonstrate that the ductile-brittle transition (DBT) occurs at 210 K. At 193 K, the energy absorption of 110 J/cm 2 at high impacts is attributed to extended areas of crack initiation and a stable crack propagation; the fast fracture load also has a high value. The steel becomes completely brittle at 77 K, at which temperature the absorbed energy falls to 6 J/cm 2 .

Based on high-resolution neutron diffraction experiments, we will show that in lath martensite steels, the initially homogeneous dislocation structure, i.e., homogeneous on the length scale of grain size, is disrupted by plastic deformation, which, in turn, produces a composite on the length scale of martensite lath packets. The diffraction patterns of plastically strained martensitic steel reveal characteristically asymmetric peak profiles in the same way as has been observed in materials with ...

Abstract The effects of prior austenite (γ) grain boundaries and microstructural morphology on the impact toughness of an annealed Fe-7Mn-0.1C-0.5Si medium Mn steel were investigated for two different microstructure states, namely, hot-rolled and annealed (HRA) specimens and cold-rolled and annealed (CRA) specimens. Both types of specimens had a dual-phase microstructure consisting of retained austenite (γ R ) and ferrite (α) after intercritical annealing at 640 °C for 30 min. The phase fraction...

Abstract The effect of tempering temperature on microstructure and mechanical properties was studied in a low-nitrogen, high-boron, 9%Cr steel. After normalizing and low-temperature tempering, cementite platelets precipitated within the martensitic matrix. This phase transformation has no distinct effect on mechanical properties. After tempering at 500 °C, M23C6 carbides appeared in the form of layers and particles with irregular shapes along the high-angle boundaries. Approximately, 6% of the r...

AbstractThe interactions between dislocations and lath boundaries in Grade 91 steel were observed by an in situ transmission electron microscopy tensile test at 973 K. Dislocations glided slowly and bowed out in a martensite lath interior. The ends of the dislocation were connected to the lath boundaries. In a tempered specimen, the pinning stress caused by the lath boundary was estimated to be >70 MPa with a lath width of 0.4 μm. In crept specimens, lath coarsening reduced the pinning effect.

Abstract A phenomenological dislocation-based approach is proposed to account for the necking phenomenon during tensile deformation of metals and alloys. The critical strain corresponding to the onset of tensile instability is predicted in a simple explicit form based on the Kocks-Mecking dislocation kinetics approach. The model strongly suggests that uniform elongation is controlled primarily by the rate of dislocation recovery. The role of the stain rate sensitivity in stabilizing uniform plas...

The creep behavior of a P92-type steel was examined at 923 K. The threshold shear stress of 51 MPa was revealed by an analysis of steady state creep behavior at applied stress ranging from 118 to 200 MPa. The tempered martensite lath structure stabilized by M23C6-type carbide particles with an average size of about 110 nm and MX-type carbonitrides with a size of 40 nm located within ferritic matrix evolved after tempering. The transient creep at an applied stress of 118 MPa was accompanied by tw...

The deformation behavior and the microstructure evolution under the creep of 10Kh9V2MFBR steel (Russian analog of the P92 steel) (in wt %, Fe–8.9% Cr–0.05% Si–0.2% Mn–1.9% W–0.5% Mo–0.25% V–0.07Nb–0.08% N–0.01% B) with the standard (0.1%) and lowered (0.018%) carbon contents have been investigated. After the heat treatment, which included normalizing at 1050°C and tempering at 720–750°C, carbides M 23 C 6 and carbonitrides M(C,N) are formed in the 10Kh9V2MFBR steel, while in the 02Kh9V2MFBR stee...

Abstract Laves phase has been widely accepted to cause the impact brittleness of 9–12Cr martensitic heat-resistant steels after long time aging at elevated temperatures. However, in the present research, the impact toughness of the already brittle P92 steel aged at 600 °C for 2035 h could be restored to the original level by reheating at 700 °C for 1 h, with Laves phase barely changed. This interesting result strongly indicated that the presence of Laves phase might not be the real reason for th...

Abstract A modified 9Cr–1Mo steel received in normalized and tempered condition has been subjected to four different hot-rolling treatments at different rolling temperatures (1050 °C, 1000 °C, 950 °C and 875 °C) applying a constant true strain of ~0.7. The rolled plates were tempered and tested for tensile and Charpy impact properties following standard procedures. Hot-rolling increased the strength by more than 100 MPa, but reduced the ductility of the steel by more than 10%. The ductile-to-bri...

The effect of Al content on the microstructure and ductile-brittle transition temperature (DBTT) of 18Cr–Al–Si ferritic heat-resistant stainless steel have been studied by Charpy impact testing over temperatures ranging from 20 to 90 ℃. Charpy impact test results show that DBTT increased with increasing Al content. Meanwhile, fracture morphology changed with increasing Al content, where the amount of dimples decreased and cleavage facets increased, indicating increases in the tendency for brittl...

An advanced, high chromium, creep-resistant steel was subjected to the tensile tests and three-point bending tests of Charpy V-notch specimens at temperatures of −196 to 20 °C. The steel exhibited ductile fracture under tension tests at all of the temperatures studied. The mechanical properties, i.e., strength and uniform elongation, were enhanced with a decrease in temperature down to −140 °C. Transgranular, dimpled fracture remained the primary fracture mechanism under tension. On the other ha...

The effect of heat treatment on the microstructure and mechanical properties of Febal-0.1 wt.%C-12Cr-3Co-2.5W-1Cu-VNbTaBN steel was investigated. After normalization in the range of 1050-1150°C, the martensitic structure was dominant; δ-ferrite content was about 10%. When the temperature of normalizing increased from 1050°C to 1150°C, the average size of prior austenite grains increased from 44 to 68 µm. After tempering at 750, 770 and 800°C, tempered martensitic lath structure with a high dislo...

Abstract The effect of temperature on the impact toughness and fracture behavior of a 10% Cr-2% W-0.7% Mo-3% Co-0.05% Nb-0.2% V-0.008% B-0.003% N (all in wt%) steel was studied. The ductile-brittle transition (DBT) occurs at 10 °C. At the DBT temperature (DBTT), the onset of unstable crack propagation occurs at the maximum load. The embrittlement is attributed to the onset of unstable crack propagation at stresses below the general yielding. A decrease in nitrogen content and an increase in boro...

Abstract The effect of different thermomechanical treatments, i.e., ausforming and tempforming, on the microstructure and mechanical properties including impact fracture behavior of high-strength low-carbon S700MC-type steel was investigated. The tempforming resulted in the development of ultrafine grained elongated grain microstructure with the transverse grain size of 530 nm, whereas the ausforming led to the formation of typical tempered martensite structure with a distance between high-angle...
