ABSTRACT. Dynamic re-crystallization (DRX) is one of the most efficient methods to achieve ultra-fine ferrite grain in the steel. The DRX associated with the formation of new grains in hot working condition. The factors influencing the grain size achievable through thermo-mechanical controlled processing are known to be work hardening and softening by dynamic process of recovery. The point at which the combine effect of strain hardening and recovery are unable to accommodate more immobile dislocation is the starting point of DRX process. In present investigation, critical stress for initiation of DRX is calculated for 0.05C-1.52Cu-1.51Mn steel and the influence of strain rate and temperature is studied. It was observed that at lower strain rate, critical stress for initiation of Dynamic re-crystallization (DRX) is increases initially and then it become saturated at higher strain rate. It is also absorbed that higher temperature and lower strain rates are the favourable condition for typical DRX process. It is also hinted that Cu precipitation take place process adopted in the experiments.
