Conventional Cold Rolling And Intercritical Annealing Of Plain Low Carbon Steel
In this study a simple method is introduced to produce dual phase ferrite-martensite structure in plain low carbon
steel. This simple method is based on cold-rolling of ferrite-pearlite structures and interical annealing treatments before icewater
quenching. The specimens intercritical annealed at 850ºC revealed the optimum mechanical properties in term of
hardness, strength and uniform elongation.
