AUSFORMING PROCESS PDF

The prospect of enhancing the hardness of low-alloy steel for the manufacture of fasteners is examined using ausforming, in which the austenite is deformed rapidly at a low temperature to increase its dislocation density prior to quenching in order to obtain the harder martensite. Surprisingly small deformations accomplish large gains in hardness and the dislocation density of martensite, with diminishing returns at larger deformations. The main contribution to the hardness has been identified as the extra dislocations inherited by the martensite from the deformed austenite, rather than the refinement of microstructure by the ausforming process. Clear evidence is reported for the mechanical stabilisation of the austenite due to ausforming. Tempering heat-treatments tend to diminish the advantages of ausforming. Hydrogen TWIP.

Thermomechanical treatment involves the simultaneous application of heat and a deformation process to an alloy, in order to change its shape and refine the microstructure. Thus, hot-rolling of metals, a well-established industrial process, is a thermomechanical treatment which plays an important part in the processing of steels.

This leads to the breaking down of the original coarse cast structure by repeated recrystallization of the steel while in the austenitic condition, and by the gradual reduction of inhomogeneities of composition caused by segregation during casting. Thus, hot-rolling of metals, a well-established industrial process, is a thermomechanical treatment which plays an important part in the processing of many steels from low carbon, mild steels to highly alloyed stainless steels.

Also, the inevitable non-metallic inclusions, i. Low temperature thermomechanical treatment -LTMT Ausforming The process known as ausforming or low temperature thermomechanical treatment LTMT , involves the deformation of austenite in the metastable bay between the ferrite and bainite curves of the TTT diagram.

The treatment is shown schematically in Fig. Steel, with a sufficiently developed metastable austenite bay is quenched from the austenitizing temperature to this region, where substantial deformation is carried out, without allowing transformation to take place. The deformed steel is then transformed to martensite during quenching to room temperature, and the appropriate balance of mechanical properties achieved by subsequent tempering.

This ausforming treatment can be contrasted with a high temperature thermomechanical treatment HTMT , where the deformation is carried out in the stable austenite region Fig. In a third process, isoforming Fig. The steel can then be slowly cooled to room temperature.

The ausforming process needs careful control to be successful and usually involves very substantial deformation. However, the attraction is that with appropriate steels dramatic increases in strength are achieved without adverse effect on ductility and toughness. Steels, in which austenite transforms rapidly at subcritical temperatures, are not suitable for ausforming.

It is necessary to add alloying elements which develop a deep metastable austenite bay by displacing the TTT curve to longer transformation times. The most useful elements in this respect are chromium, molybdenum, nickel and manganese, and allowance must be made for the fact that deformation of the austenite accelerates the transformation. Consequently, it is necessary to have sufficient alloying element present to slow down the reaction and avoid the formation of ferrite during cooling to the deformation temperature.

The austenite grain size should be as tine as possible, not only to increase the dislocation density during deformation but also to minimize the martensite plate size on quenching from the metastable austenite bay.

Cooling from the austenitizing temperature to the metastable bay must be sufficiently rapid to avoid the formation of ferrite and, after deformation, the cooling should be fast enough to prevent the formation of bainite. The strength achieved as a result of ausforming increases as the deformation temperature is decreased, presumably because of the greater strain hardening induced in the austenite. In any case, the temperature chosen should be low enough to avoid recovery and recrystallization, but high enough to prevent bainite from forming during the deformation.

Premature austenite decomposition has been found to be detrimental to mechanical properties. The amount of deformation is a most important variable.

There is a roughly linear relationship between the degree of working and the strength finally achieved, with increases between 4 and 8 MPa per percent deformation. As might be expected, steels subjected to heavy deformation during ausforming exhibit very high dislocation densities up to 10 13 cm -2 formed partly during deformation and partly during the shear transformation to martensite.

On transforming the warm worked austenite to martensite, it is likely that at least part of the dislocation substructure, together with the fine carbide dispersion, is inherited by the martensite. The martensite plate size has been shown to be very substantially smaller than in similar steels given a straight quench from the austenitizing temperature.

Several factors must contribute to strength because anyone mechanism cannot fully account for the high degree of strengthening observed. However, it seems likely that the major contributions are from the very high dislocation density and the fine dispersion of alloy carbides associated with the dislocations. It should also be added that the fine precipitate particles can act as dislocation multiplication centers during plastic deformation.

The martensitic transformation is an essential part of the strengthening process, as it substantially increases the dislocation density and divides each deformed austenite grain into a large number of martensitic plates, which are much smaller than those in conventional heat treatments. It is also likely that these small plates have inherited fine dislocation substructures from the deformed metastable austenite. Isoforming The process of isoforming involves deformation of metastable austenite, but the deformation is continued until the transformation of austenite is complete at the deformation temperature Fig.

As in the case of steels for ausforming, the chosen steel must have a suitable TTT diagram. First, it is necessary to be able to deform the austenite prior to transformation, then the transformation must be complete before deformation has ceased. Only modest increases in strength are achieved. However, there can be a very substantial improvement in toughness due to the refinement of the ferrite grain size and the replacement of lamellar cementite by spheroidized particles.

Finally, care must be taken to restrict deformation to temperatures at which the ferrite and pearlite reactions take place as similar deformation in the bainitic region leads to marked reductions in toughness. High temperature thermomechanical treatments HTMT In high temperature thermomechanical treatments the deformation is carried out in the stable austenite range just above Ac 3 Fig. The steel is then quenched to the martensitic state and tempered at an appropriate temperature.

As in ausforming strong carbide forming elements are beneficial, which suggests that alloy carbide precipitation occurs in the austenite during deformation. The HTMT process does not yield as high strengths as in ausforming but the ductility and fatigue properties are usually superior. Clearly, HTMT is a variant of controlled rolling. However, it is normally applied to steels with higher alloying contents which can then be transformed to martensite and tempered.

Industrial steels subjected to thermomechanical treatments Ausforming has provided some of the strongest, toughest steels so far produced, with the added advantage of very good fatigue resistance. However, they usually have high concentrations of expensive alloying elements and must be subjected to large deformations, which impose heavy workloads on rolling mills. Nevertheless, these steels are particularly useful where a high strength to weight ratio is required and where cost is a secondary factor.

Typical applications have included parts for undercarriages of aircraft, special springs and bolts. Similar high strength levels with good ductility have been reported for 0. All of these steels are sufficiently highly alloyed to allow adequate time for substantial deformation in the austenite bay of the TTT curve prior to transformation.

Ausforming

Ausforming also known as Low and High temperature thermomechanical treatments is a method used to increase the hardness and toughness of an alloy by simultaneously tempering, rapid cooling, deforming and quenching to change its shape and refine the microstructure. Its origin originates from early uses of steel management. Discovered by Benjamin, it is currently a critical part of steel infrastructure and is produced at quantities upwards of , tons daily.
