Textures in low-carbon steels are of great significance in view of their strong influence on important physical properties such as formability and magnetic induction. Recent studies on the formation and evolution of textures through different processing stages of hot rolling, cold rolling and annealing have brought out many unique features, e.g. presence of complete and almost ideal fibre axes, inheritance of texture, texture memory effect and parallels between single crystal and polycrystalline situations. In particular, it has been possible to develop a fairly cogent picture of the genesis and perpetuation of the Goss texture.

In recent times, efforts have been directed towards a better understanding of the mechanisms associated with deformation and restoration of austenite during continuous multipass hot rolling of microalloyed steels. The correspondence between the condition of austenite before transformation and the resultant microstructure upon cooling holds the key to the attainment of interesting properties.
In the present paper, some results obtained on the deformation of austenite in a microalloyed steel, using a hot compression machine, are presented. Here, the idea was to simulate actual plate rolling or hot strip rolling conditions and study the evolution of microstructure at different stages of the hot deformation process i.e. after precise reductions at given strain rate and temperature of deformation.
The paper further discusses recent results obtained by us on the influence of hot deformation parameters (strain, finish rolling temperature, temperature of deformation) and cooling rates (air cooling, spray water cooling) on the microstructure of microalloyed steel. The precise conditions leading to the evolution of acicular ferrite and bainitic microstructures have been identified. New information on the influence of short tempering treatments (15 min at 550, 600 and 650°C) on the microstructure and properties of a microalloyed steel are also outlined.
