Super-tough Steel for Bridges and Other Applications


Addition of titanium (Ti) to ASTM A710 Grade B Cu-precipitation-strengthened steel significantly increases the impact absorbed fracture energy and reduces the ductile-to-brittle transition temperature. The effect of Ti correlates with the reduction of the amount of pearlite in the ferritic microstructure. A thorough study of the mechanical properties of Ti-modified A 710-B steel is presented.
