Abstract

The aim of the project reported here was to study factors affecting microstructural evolution during the hot rolling of plates and to derive quantitative relationships to describe the behaviour, using both laboratory and commercial plate rolling trials. Single pass rolling trials have been carried out on a range of commercially produced stainless steels (types 304, 316 and 310). Concurrent studies as Sheffield University into grain growth in cast and wrought structures after rolling, have shown that the presence of retained ferrite has a marked effect on the resulting grain size, with higher ferrite contents leading to finer recrystallized grain sizes. Finite elements analysis has been employed to investigate strain around ferrite particles.
