Dislocation characteristics in lath martensitic steel by neutron diffraction

Harjo, S.; Kawasaki, Takuro; Gong, W.; Aizawa, Kazuya

In situ neutron diffraction during tensile deformation of an as-quenched lath martensitic 22SiMn2TiB steel, was performed using a high resolution and high intensity time-offlight neutron diffractometer. The characterizations of dislocations were analyzed using the classical Williamson-Hall (cWH) and modified Williamson-Hall (mWH) plots on the breadth method, and the convolutional multiple whole profile (CMWP) fitting method. As results, the dislocation density as high as 10$$^{15}$$ m$$^{-2}$$ in the as-quenched martensitic steel was determined. The dislocation density was found to decrease qualitatively with plastic deformation by the cWH and mWH plots, but hardly to change by the CMWP method. The scanning transmission electron microscopy observation supported the results of the latter method. In the CMWP method, the parameter $$M$$ that represents the arrangement of dislocations was found to decrease rapidly where a very high work hardening was observed.
