The microstructure of intercritically deformed lean steels is known to be rather complex, showing significant variations as a function of the imposed strain path. This paper describes a detailed metallographic study of an intercritically deformed C-Mn steel and a generally applicable methodology for determining the relevant metallographic processes from specific combinations of metallurgical features.
