Abstract
In this technical paper the role of alloy chemistry and secondary processing on tensile response and final fracture behavior of four high strength steels is presented and discussed. The conjoint influence of composition, secondary processing and intrinsic microstructural features in governing stress versus strain response and tensile properties is highlighted. The macroscopic mode and intrinsic microscopic features that result from final fracture of the four high strength steels is discussed. The intrinsic microscopic mechanisms governing tensile deformation and final fracture behavior of the high strength steels are outlined in light of the specific role played by composition, intrinsic microstructural effects and nature of loading.
