Abstract Ferrite grain sizes of the order of 1 to 2 µm were obtained by optimizing the strain, strain rate, the stage of cooling, as well as the cooling rate during hot rolling of 0.15C-0.92Mn-0.01Si-0.036S-0.04P-0.013Nb steel. It was found that in single-pass rolling of a 10 mm plate to a thickness of 3.5 mm with an entry temperature of 800 °C, and early-stage water cooling, very fine grains of ferrite (1–2 µm) were formed at the surface and in subsurface regions. It was also found that the threshold level of reduction during rolling, which is required for the refinement of ferrite grains, is >50%. The 3.5 mm thermomechanically processed plate was found to possess very attractive mechanical properties in terms of the yield strength (485 MPa), the ultimate tensile strength (UTS) (763 MPa), and particularly the yield strength to ultimate tensile strength (YS/UTS) ratio (0.63). This combination of properties can be explained on the basis of the composite microstructure consisting of ferrite and bainite that was obtained as a result of the thermomechanical processing.
