TRIP–aided steels are ideal for lightweight automotive applications due to their high strength and ductility. Thermomechanical processing simulations were performed by hot compression on a Gleeble–1500 machine, in order to develop a comprehensive understanding of the effect of cooling rate after dynamic transformation of undercooled austenite (DTUA) on the microstructure evolution and mechanical properties of 0.2C–1.5Mn–0.5Si–1.0Al (mass faction, %) transformation–induced plasticity (TRIP) steel. The results show that the metastable austenite would be transformed to ferrite mainly by means of nucleation during cooling after DTUA. Decreasing the cooling rate after DTUA, the vlume fraction of ferrite increase, the static recovery of dislocations in ferrite produced during dynamic transformation could fully take place, thus the density of dislocations in ferrite decreased through by rearranging and merging, but the grain size of ferrite changes little. At the cooling rate of 30℃/s, the investigated steel has a moderate volume fraction of ferrite and dislocation density in ferrite and a higher volume fraction of retained austenite, resulting in the steel having a higher strength and plasticity.

Key words:  hot rolled TRIP steel      dynamic transformation of undercooled austenite (DTUA)      cooling rate      microstructure      mechanical property
