Deformation scheme plays the significant role in texture and microstructure formation
of the processed metal ensuring the definite level mechanical properties. Medium carbon steel
wire with 0.5 %C was chosen for investigation. It was deformed by combined deformational
processing by drawing with bending and twisting. XRD analysis of the processed wire showed
that after drawing <110> fiber texture is formed along the drawing direction. Combined
deformational processing by drawing with bending and drawing with bending and twisting results
in texture formation in the wire in each case in transverse direction. In microstructure of medium
carbon steel wire deformation and breakdown of cementite lamellae can be noticed after all kinds
of deformational processing.
Keywords: medium carbon steel wire; combined deformation; texture; microstructure.
