Summary In the present study, the effect of nominal equivalent strain (between 0 and 1.2), deformation temperature (790– 750°C) and carbon content (0.06 – 0.35%C) was investigated on ferrite grain refinement through dynamic strain induced transformation (DSIT) in plain carbon steels in single pass rolling. The microstructural evolution of the transformation of austenite to ferrite has been evaluated through the thickness of the strip. The results showed a number of important microstructural features as a function of strain, which could be classified into three regions; no DSIT region, DSIT region, and ultrafine ferrite (UFF) grain region. Hence, two critical strains; dynamic strain induced transformation (εC, DSIT) and ultrafine ferrite formation (εC, UFF) were determined. These strains were increased significantly with an increase in carbon content. The critical strain for UFF formation reduced with decrease in deformation temperature. The UFF microstructure consisted of ultrafine, equiaxed ferrite grains (<2 μm) with very fine cementite particles. In the centre of the rolled strip, there was a conventional ferrite– pearlite microstructure, although ferrite grain refinement and the volume fraction of ferrite increased with increase in the nominal equivalent strain.
