The aim of the paper was to investigate the helical rolling parameters (a number of passes) for the microstructural modification and the low‐temperature impact toughness improvement of the 09Mn2Si High Strength Low‐Alloyed (HSLA) steel. In order to achieve this purpose, work spent to crack initiation and propagation was analyzed and compared with patterns of fracture surfaces. The microstructure and impact toughness values were presented in the temperature range from +20 to –70°C. Also, the fracture mechanisms in individual regions on the fracture surfaces were dis-cussed. In addition, a methodology for computer simulation of the process was developed and im-plemented within the framework of the excitable cellular automata method and its integration with the kinetic theory of fracture. Finally, a theoretical analysis of the effect of grain shapes and orien-tations on the strain response patterns of a certain meso‐volume simulating the material after the helical rolling was carried out.
