Thermomechanical strengthening increases the strength and plasticity of low-alloy low-carbon steel reinforcement and provides an alternative to expensive alloying. Scanning and transmission electron microscopy investigations of the failure surface, phase composition, morphology, and defect substructure of 0.25% carbon steel (St3ps) after thermal strengthening by discontinuous quenching in the rolling-mill line reveals the formation of a gradient states in the rod cross-section.
