Abstract : The effect of short time austenitizing treatments on 0.21% carbon steel, with or without niobium additions has been investigated. A considerable refinement of ferrite grain size can be produced, causing thereby an enhancement of the yield strength and a lowering of the transition temperature. (Author)
