grain size control


grain size control
when a steel is austenitised by heating to above the critical range, time is required for the production of a homogeneous structure during which there is a tendency towards grain growth. Although subsequent hot and cold working affect the grain size, it is originally controlled at the steel making stage by the addition of aluminum.
