Much recent work has been devoted to characterize the microstructure and mechanical properties bainitic nanostructured steels. The microstructure is developed by isothermal heat treatment at temperatures as low as 125-350oC and adapted steel grades typically contain high carbon contents to achieve sufficient depletion of the BS-MS temperature range, and(More)
In situ neutron diffraction experiment was used during tensile testing at room temperature to examine the changes on the percentage and texture of both ferrite and austenite in a nanocrystalline bainitic steels transformed at two different temperatures 200°C and 300oC for different times to achieve the same phase percentages. Both samples showed an(More)
Recent work has shown that bainitic ferrite plates produced by transformation at low temperatures can be as thin as 20 nm with a hardness in excess of 650 HV30, tensile strengthy2.3 GPa and toughnessy30 MPa m. Because these properties rely on the fine scale of the microstructure, a study has been carried out in relation to the tempering resistance of steel(More)
The redistribution of carbon after tempering of a novel nanocrystalline bainitic steel consisting of a mixture of supersaturated ferrite and retained austenite has been analyzed by atom probe tomography. No direct evidence supporting the additional carbon enrichment of austenite beyond that initially achieved during the bainite heat treatment was obtained(More)

High silicon (>1.5%) steels with different compositions were isothermally transformed to bainite at 220 and 250 ◦C to produce what is often referred to as nanostructured bainite. Interrupted tensile tests were carried out and the retained austenite was measured as a function of strain. Results were correlated with tensile ductility. The role of retained(More)
