Abstract

The grain size dependence of critical strain for serrations associated with dynamic strain aging has been examined in a twinning-induced plasticity steel. Tensile tests were conducted at various deformation temperatures and strain rates in a Fe-17Mn-0.6C steel (mass%) with grain sizes 3.5, 10, 23, 37, and 44 μm. In addition, the carbon concentration varied from 0.3 to 0.8 in the Fe-17Mn-xC steels with coarse grains. The critical strain for the onset of serrations was found to show an inverse grain size dependence, i.e., the critical strain increased with the decrease in grain size, the opposite of what occurs in conventional alloys.
