Abstract

The microstructure and occurrence of a microconstituent, consisting of martensite and retained austenite in hot-rolled plates of low-carbon bainitic steels was studied by electron microscopy and microprobe analysis. The results of the studies showed that the formation of the martensite-austenite constituent is controlled by the composition of the steel and by the cooling rate of the plates following hot-rolling. The mechanisms involved in the formation of the martensiteaustenite constituent are discussed.
