Abstract

Quenching and partitioning (Q&P) processes were applied to a cold-rolled high strength steel (0.19C-1.26Si-2.82Mn-0.92Ni, wt %). The effects of the prior hot-rolled microstructure on the optimum quenching temperature of the studied steels were systematically investigated. The microstructure was analyzed by means of transmission electron microscope (TEM), electron backscatter diffraction (EBSD) and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Compared with the ferrite pearlite mixture matrix, the lower martensite start (Ms) temperature and smaller prior austenite grain size in the cold-rolled martensite matrix are the main reasons for the optimum quenching temperature shifting to a lower temperature in the Q&P steels. We found that an empirical formula that only considers the influence of the alloy composition in the calculation of the Ms temperature will cause a certain interference to the pre-determined optimum quenching temperature of the Q&P steel.
