Abstract

The first part of this study deals with the precipitation of titanium and niobium compounds in interstitial-free steels containing titanium (IF-Ti) and steels containing niobium and titanium (IF-Nb+Ti), and in particular, with the evolution of these precipitates as a function of steel composition and thermomechanical processing. The study addressed the subject of the specific effects of alloying elements, either in solid solution and/or in precipitate form, on the development of the recrystallization texture, in the case of IF-Ti steels only. A bibliographic study was performed in order to determine the variations of the anisotropy coefficient as well as of the recrystallization temperature for a large range of titanium solid solution contents. The final objective of this research is to be able to define the chemical compositions and hot rolling schedules which allow for the control and optimization of the precipitation with regard to the final properties of the cold rolled and continuously annealed final product.
