Effect of vanadium in the warm forging of a medium carbon steel
Keywords:Microalloyed steels, Warm forging, Mechanical properties, Toughness
In the present work the influence of vanadium on the microstructure and mechanical properties of a medium carbon steel forged below 900°C is analysed. Undisolved V(CN) refines the microstructure and together with reprecipitated particles during cooling contribute to strengthening. Both effects maintain mechanical strength levels without decreasing toughness values.
