Application-oriented strain-hardening engineering of high-manganese steels

18 Sep 2019  ·  Haase Christian, Roters Franz, Quadfasel Angela ·

The outstanding mechanical properties of high-manganese steels (HMnS) are a result of their high strain-hardenability. That is facilitated by strong suppression of dynamic recovery, predominant planar glide, and the activation of additional deformation mechanisms, such as transformation-induced plasticity (TRIP) and twinning-induced plasticity (TWIP)... However, depending on the final application, strongly differing requirements on the mechanical properties of HMnS are of relevance. In order to design HMnS for specific applications, multi-scale material simulation under consideration of the processing conditions that allows for prediction of the final mechanical properties is required, i.e. strain-hardening engineering based on integrated computational materials engineering (ICME). In this work, we present an approach that employs alloy selection by stacking-fault energy calculations, which enables activation/suppression of specific deformation mechanisms. Tailored manufacturing, e.g. by thermo-mechanical treatment, severe plastic deformation or additive manufacturing, provides possibilities to make use of the strain-hardenability during and after processing to define the mechanical properties. A computational approach for alloy and process design will be discussed. read more
