Study of fractional softening in multi-stage hot deformation
In this paper, the softening behaviour of a medium-carbon steel under hot working conditions in multi-stage compression is presented. Continuous and interrupted compression tests were performed in the temperature range 800–1100 degrees Celsius at strain rates of 0.1, 1 and 8 s1. The interrupted deformations were conducted with delay times varying between 1 to 20 s after achieving a strain of approximately 0.2 to 0.4 in the first stage. The fractional softening has been predicted by three different methods, namely the offset-stress method, the back-extrapolation stress method and a currently proposed strain-recovery method. It has been found that the back-extrapolation stress method normally predicts higher reloading stress and hence a lower fractional softening than that of the offset-stress method. The strain-recovery method yields consistent results in the estimation of fractional softening that can be used in predicting the deformation mechanism.
