With appropriate electropulsing parameters, the microstructure of steels can be manipulated towards a state that possesses favourable physical, mechanical and chemical properties. This work demonstrates the application of designed electropulsing to pearlitic steel, transformation induced plasticity steel, austenite stainless steel and clean steel in order to generate novel microstructures that are difficult to achieve by other conventional thermomechanical processes. The principles for the design of electropulsing processing have been discussed. The method is particularly suitable for fabrication of the advanced multiphase and multicomponent alloys.
