Abstract:

The scope of the present research included two parts 1 to further strengthen the 112111 texture in the 5Ni steel actually a medium-carbon 5Ni-Si-Cu-Mo-V steel armor by introducing modifications to the previously employed hot-rolling process, and to provide latitude in production of this superior textured armor plate 2 to investigate the crystallographic texture formation in an austenitic steel system such as the A-286 alloy so that textures other than those formed in quenched-and-tempered martensite can be produced and their effects on properties can be studied.
