The work is in the form of a project aimed at furthering the understanding of metallurgical interactions during the processing of hot rolled CMn (-Si) steel grades. The aim has been achieved through a number of complimentary investigations. Through-coil mechanical testing and metallographic examination, coupled with detailed analyses of relevant process parameters, have highlighted the typical properties and property variations within Corus' CMn (-Si) products. Deformation dilatometry experiments have allowed the transformation behaviour of CMn (-Si) compositions to be assessed and compared with that predicted by transformation theory. Laboratory-scale rolling and cooling experiments have demonstrated the effects of composition and process variations on steel properties. These combined discoveries have contributed to a deeper understanding of the metallurgy of CMn (-Si) steel manufacture. The project has illustrated where product design changes can contribute to enhanced properties, helping Corus to ensure the long-term success of its CMn (-Si) steels within the automotive market.
