There is a slight difference in the size of bainite sheaves in case of the lower feed rate of 370 kg/h.
Inventors say super bainite has shown twice the strength of normal steel
But they also saw another form called bainite microstructure, scattered with carbon-rich compounds called carbides.
Consequently, the bainite regions are smaller and the volume fraction of bainite decreases (Basuki et al.
AHSS are primarily multi-phase steels, which contain ferrite, martensite, bainite, and/or retained austenite in quantities sufficient to produce unique mechanical properties.
At the same time it was noted at XXIII International Congress on Wheel Pairs (Rome, 2001) that from economic viewpoint it is more profitable to operate wheels with applied coating from low-carbon bainite steel [11], in which despite formation of creep nuclei development of pockholes and cracks does not take place, which allows reducing thickness of the layer that is removed in wheel turning and increasing term of the wheel operation.
