摘要：In human history, the development of stronger materials through the ages is reflected with names of eras illustrating our progress. Besides phase transformations, plastic deformation is one of the major methods to produce products with reliable and predictable mechanical properties such as strength. Pearlitic steel wire, the strongest mass-produced steel, shows an excellent combination of formability and strength .
The deformation microstructure and tensile properties of pearlitic steel (0.8 wt % C) have been quantified in wires drawn up to a strain of 5.4 with a flow stress up to 4.5 GPa. The interlamellar spacing (ILS) decreases from 88 to 10 nm and the cementite lamellar decreases from 18 nm to about 0.7 nm with increasing strain, representing a structure, which breaks up at large strains, decomposes and releases carbon to the ferrite lamellae. The dislocation density in the ferrite lamellae increases continuously with strain and reaches about 5 × 1016 m−2 at a strain of 5.4. The dislocations are stored as threading dislocations, as dislocation tangles and as cell boundaries with low to medium misorientation angles. An analysis of the evolution of microstructure suggests that dislocation-based plasticity is a dominating mechanism in the wire and three strengthening mechanisms are applied: boundary strengthening, dislocation strengthening and solid solution hardening with their relative contributions to the total flow stress which change as the strain is increased [2-4].
To further the understanding of the deformation mechanisms in the nanolamellar structures, microstructure and strengthening mechanisms in ultrastrong drawn iron wires have been investigated. Ultrastrong pure iron wires have been produced with a strength of 1.8 GPa at a strain of 10.35. Based on microstructural observation and quantified structural parameters, the strengthening mechanisms and strength-structure relationship have been analyzed. It is found that the <110> fiber texture intensity, boundary spacing and boundary misorientation tend to saturation due to the boundary junction motion when the drawing strain exceeds 8.89. The dislocation density in the ferrite cells/lamellae increases to ~ 3.6 × 1015 m−2 at a drawing strain of 10.35 without saturation. Based on the systematic microstructural characterization and quantification, the d−1 or (2d)−0.5 boundary strengthening plus forest hardening are discussed .
