The primary objective of this investigation is to evaluate the response of low alloy steels to thermomechanical treatments involving transformation to bainites. The treatments of interest involve deformation of the alloys either before or after the bainite reaction. The parameters measured are strength, ductility and fracture toughness. Structural changes produced by these thermomechanical treatments are being studied by means of light and electron microscopy and an attempt will be made to determine the strengthening mechanisms involved in these processes.
