Tensile Fracture Behavior of Progressively-Drawn Pearlitic Steels
AbstractIn this paper a study is presented of the tensile fracture behavior of progressively-drawn pearlitic steels obtained from five different cold-drawing chains, including each drawing step from the initial hot-rolled bar (not cold-drawn at all) to the final commercial product (pre-stressing steel wire). To this end, samples of the different wires were tested up to fracture by means of standard tension tests, and later, all of the fracture surfaces were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Micro-fracture maps (MFMs) were assembled to characterize the different fractographic modes and to study their evolution with the level of cumulative plastic strain during cold drawing.
