Microalloyed structural plate rolling heat treatment and applications

International Symposium Niobium 2001

Structural plates with a superior combination of mechanical properties and weldability are the result of a synergistic effect of microalloyed low carbon equivalent composition plus sophisticated thermo-mechanical control process variants or heat treatment during production in the plate mill. The paper considers both the production routes of such plate and the applications based on the beneficial type of microstructure and property profile. (AU)
