Etude de la structure et des propriétés de l'acier à béton après déformations à froid

Abstract : Properties which are required from an armature for the reinforced concrete should satisfy the requirements of National, European and International standards. At the present time, in practice of armature production, there is a tendency of replacement of various classes of reinforcing steels by the unified armature with the minimum value of yield strength of 500 MPa. Replacement of the armature of the 400 MPa class by such reinforcing steel brings the economy of metal of an order of 10-20 % according to the estimations of various experts.In general, a set of production technologies of the armature exists, including hot deformation with the subsequent accelerated cooling in water - Thermomechanical Control Process (TMCP), and also cold deformation (drawing in conic die block, drawing in roller die block, microrolling) which nevertheless face the impossibility to provide the required strength (yield strength > 500MPa) and plastic properties.The technological purpose of the given work is:- development of the combined mechano-thermomechanical processing of armature's production which would combine positive aspects of hot and cold deformations (post deformation processing after TMCP);- examination of possibilty to manufacture the reinforcing steel of the class of 500MPa (B(A)500) of the small diameter, in coils, meeting the requirements of modem standards.The scientific objective of the work is the analysis of change of the microstructure of reinforcing steels after the cold deformation which is preliminary subjected to thermomechanical processing, and, also, the examination of the influence of microstructural effect on change of mechanical properties of steels.In the present study, a significant quantity of grades of low-carbon steels of various diameters has been investigated. Also, different techniques for macroscopical and microscopical characterization of the steel structures have been applied: tensile tests, micro-hardness test, optical microscopy, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray analysis and mechanical spectroscopy.Results of tests show that it is possible to obtain, with assurance, the reinforcing steel of the strength class B(A)500, with a complex of the mechanical properties surpassing the requirements of standards. For this purpose it is proposed to use the deformation by cold torsion with the maximum relative shear of 22 %, after thermomechanical processing, for steels with carbon content of 0,15...0,25% and alloyed with Mn and Si. Deformation by torsion provides an increase of hardness not only on the surface, but also in the core of armature. The effect of hardness increase can be strengthened by means of thermal ageing at 100°C corresponding to the use in Civil Engineering. This effect, related to the dislocations- interstitial impurities interactions, was explained thanks to MET and internal friction effect.
