Summary The nonlinear unloading behavior of three different commercial dual-phase steels (DP780 grade equivalent) was examined. These steels exhibited small variations in chemical composition (0.07 to 0.10 mass percent carbon) and martensite volume fraction (0.23 to 0.28), and they demonstrated similar hardening behavior. Uniaxial loading-unloading-loading tests were conducted at room temperature and quasi-static strain rates between engineering strains of 0.5 and 8%. Steel microstructures were examined using electron backscatter diffraction and nanoindentation techniques. The microplastic component of the unloading strain exhibited no dependence on the martensite volume fraction or the ferrite grain size within the small range encountered in this investigations. Instead, the magnitude of the microplastic component of the unloading strain increased as the strength ratio between the martensite and ferrite phases increased. Correspondingly, the apparent unloading modulus, or chord modulus, exhibited a greater reduction for equivalent increments of strain hardening as the strength ratio increased. These results suggest that springback can be reduced in structures containing two ductile phases if the strength ratio between the harder and softer phases is reduced.
