Summary The multi-phase structure of a novel low-alloy transformation induced plasticity (TRIP) steel was designed through experimental analysis. The evolutions of both microstructure and mechanical properties during the two-stage heat treatment were analyzed. The phase transformations during the intercritical annealing and the isothermal bainitic transformation were investigated by means of dilatometry. It was shown that two types of C diffusion were detected during intercritical annealing and a complex microstructure was formed after heat treatment. The processing parameters were selected in such a way to obtain microstructures with systematically different volume fractions of ferrite, bainite and retained austenite. The volume fractions of ferrite and retained austenite were found to be two main factors controlling the ductility. Furthermore, a high volume fraction of C-rich retained austenite, which was stabilized at room temperature, was the origin of a TRIP effect. The resulting material demonstrates a significant improvement in the ultimate tensile strength (1077. MPa) with good uniform elongation (22.5%), as compared to conventional TRIP steels. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
