Abstract

Physical metallurgy has greatly improved our knowledge of hot rolling and transformation of steels and many sub-models are now available to describe or to simulate the microstructure evolution at each step of the rolling schedule, the thermal schedule and the rolling loads, as well as predicting the final mechanical properties of the end-product. The need for a single model, linking all these sub-models, to cover the whole thermomechanical schedule is now evident and this work has therefore focused on developing a computer model that integrates these metallurgical subroutines to describe the microstructural evolution of steels, from reheating to the final cooling, and can predict the mechanical properties of steels.
