In Situ Microstructure Observation Of Steel Grades In The Semi-Solid State For Thixoforging Process By Using Confoncal Laser Scanning Microscopy


The microstructure plays a crucial role for steel semi-solid forming process, and particularly for the steel thixoforging process, since it determines the thixotropic flow behavior of materials in the semi-solid state. Therefore, it is necessary to well understand the microstructure evolution during high speed heating and forming. Classically, it is… (More)
