Résumé : The microstructures of TRIP steels finish-rolled above and below the recrystallization-stop temperature (T-nr) are compared. Here, the retained austenite grains are equiaxed or elongated, respectively, according to whether final rolling was carried out above or below the Tnr. The recrystallized austenite did not contain a sharp texture, the best defined component of which was the cube. The bainite that formed in this case was characterized by weak concentrations of the Goss and rotated Goss and a fairly strong concentration of the rotated cube. It also displayed the transformation products of a retained rolling fibre in the prior austenite. The deformed austenite contained the typical fcc rolling texture, where the copper is considerably more intense than the brass under these conditions. After transformation to bainite, the presence of a strong transformed copper component is evident, together with somewhat less intense contributions from the three transformed brass components. The data indicate that strong variant selection took place in the deformed austenite and that it was also present in the recrystallized material, but to a lesser extent. The latter displayed evidence of incomplete recrystallization in that the transformation texture included components obtained from both "recrystallized" and "deformed" austenite.
