Hot working process optimization of Fe–20Mn–19Cr–0.5C–0.6N steel by activation energy, power dissipation and microstructural evolution

Hot deformation behavior of an Fe–20Mn–19Cr–0.5C–0.6N high-nitrogen austenitic steel has been studied by isothermal compression tests in deformation temperature range of 800–1200 °C and strain rate range of 0.01–10 s−1. Results indicate that the …

Interface reaction of high-strength low-alloy steel with Al–43.4Zn–1.6Si (wt.%) metallic coating

The microstructure, elemental distribution, phase composition, and thickness of intermetallic layers between high-strength low-alloy steel (H420)/mild carbon steel (DC51) and Al–43.4Zn–1.6Si (wt.%) (galvalume, GL) alloy were comparatively …

Effect of cooling rate and composition on microstructure and mechanical properties of ultrahigh-strength steels

The influence of cooling rate on the microstructure and mechanical properties of two new ultrahigh-strength steels (UHSSs) with different levels of C, Cr and Ni has been evaluated for the as-cooled and untempered condition. One UHSS had higher …

Effect of welding heat input on microstructure and impact toughness in CGHAZ of X100Q steel

The coarse-grained heat-affected zones (CGHAZs) of X100Q steel were reproduced via simulating their welding thermal cycles with the varying heat input (Ej) from 10 to 55 kJ/cm in Gleeble3500 system. The microstructures were characterized, and the …
