Abstract : A new family of ultra-low carbon bainitic (ULCB) steels for heavy plate applications has been investigated. These new steels have been developed as possible candidates to replace traditionally heat treated HTS and HY steels. One major attraction of the ULCB steels is that they do not need to be heat treated to obtain their final mechanical properties. The ULCB steels obtain their high strength and high resistance to both ductile and brittle fracture through the proper combination of alloy design and thermomechanical treatment.
